Goodreads:When Lexie Anderson’s mother suddenly announces she is marrying a Romanian immigrant, Lexie willingly leaves behind her busy life in Connecticut for her penance in “The Moose Capital of the World.” Small town living is strange enough, now Lexie must cope with her overbearing stepfamily monitoring her every move. They disappear into the woods at night and keep a strange secret locked in their shed.

Animals and people in town are turning up dead and Lexie learns the strange new world she lives in has real life monsters.

I didn't no what to expect of this book but i really enjoyed it. i thought the storyline was good but maybe a little rushed but for the number of pages it was fine. there were a few tricks and turns where i thought ah i know who did it then i got to the end and went what! how didn't i see that coming! it was really good!
I Felt so sorry for Lexie at times, she blames herself for the death of her dad, then her mam remarries, then she is stuck with overbearing brothers who don't respect her privacy even take the lock off her door, her phone contract gets cancelled, her Internet gets cancelled. just reading it made me feel trapped! i hated some of the characters but you will have to read to find out which because it would give the story away if i told!
I really enjoyed the book i will be reading the second book to find out what happens!
