#BookReview: I Am Margaret Moore by Hannah Capin

Synopsis: Lyrical and haunting, Hannah Capin's I Am Margaret Moore is a paranormal thriller that tests the hold of sisterhood and truth.

I am a girl. I am a monster, too.

Each summer the girls of Deck Five come back to Marshall Naval School. They sail on jewel-blue waters; they march on green drill-fields; they earn sunburns and honors. They push until they break apart and heal again, stronger.

Each summer Margaret and Rose and Flor and Nisreen come back to the place where they are girls, safe away from the world: sisters bound by something more than blood.

But this summer everything has changed. Girls are missing and a boy is dead. It’s because of Margaret Moore, the boys say. It’s because of what happened that night in the storm.

Margaret’s friends vanish one by one, swallowed up into the lies she has told about what happened between her and a boy with the world at his feet. Can she unravel the secrets of this summer and last, or will she be pulled under by the place she once called home?

This title will be released on March 15, 2022.

My Review: Ok so full disclaimer I swore this was out this year in Oct.  So I guess its been pushed back to March of 22.  So this is now SO EARLY!! But we are done with it so here comes the review.  

Ok so this one I kind of went back and forth with. I didn't really connect with the characters but the story itself was so good.  I think that this one would be one to try from the library before committing to it fully. I mean books are expensive.  I loved the thrilling experience of this story but the characters just didn't mesh with me at all.  I will say that the story took me a little to get used to as it jumped a smidge though the summers.  So it was kind of confusing but if you keep with it I am sure you will enjoy it. 


"A hypnotic, spellbinding exploration of sisterhood, summer, and the secrets girls keep, both from others and themselves. With ethereal prose and razor-sharp insight, I Am Margaret Moore starts as a whisper and rages into a full-on scream." - Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of The Girls Are So Nice Here and All Eyes on Her

"Sinister, sultry, and steeped in rage, I Am Margaret Moore is like a classical tragedy remixed with a Lana Del Rey track. Capin’s signature poetic, pulse-pounding prose is just as indelible as the ferocious girls she writes about." - Layne Fargo, author of They Never Learn 

"I read this book in four hours with a white knuckle grip on the cover. Capin's lush, lyrical prose will lure you in like a dark seduction, and leave you gasping for air as you frantically turn the pages, hunting for the devastating, explosive truth." - Kylie Schachte, author of You're Next 

“A raging thunderstorm of a novel with velvet-rich prose that opens all the wounds of girlhood: haunting, heartbreaking, and at points utterly terrifying, you’ll feel this book deep within your bones long after it strikes.” - Julia Lynn Rubin, author of Trouble Girls
