Product Details


A riveting tale of pain and revenge, Hilary Monahan’s The Hollow Girl hits the horrifying notes—dread and darkness and grisly ends—yet somehow still feels full of heart. There is magic here, and power, and Monahan’s Romani background shines in every detail. I couldn’t tear my eyes away.” —Kendare Blake, New York Times bestselling author of Three Dark Crowns
A richly woven tapestry of magic, betrayal, and revenge told by a strong, spirited heroine who won my heart, broke it to pieces, and then healed it anew. Brava!” —Dawn Kurtagich, award-winning author of The Dead House
A dark tale of revenge and justice in which fighting back means pushing the boundaries of what it can mean to be female.” —Mindy McGinnis, Edgar Award–winning author of The Female of the Species
“Hillary Monahan’s The Hollow Girl is tense and raw, an excellent novel of pain and intimate magic. There is ugly human darkness here, but there is also hope and love and family. Monahan is a natural-born storyteller whose words kept me reading long into the night. Terrific!” —Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Ararat and Snowblind

“The Hollow Girl is required reading: a tour de force of female power, craft, and emotion.” —Sarah Gailey, author of River of Teeth

A cathartic revenge fantasy…Quentin Tarantino-style.“—Kirkus Reviews

“Both compelling and terrifying, this is a tense tale of love and fear…has strong appeal for fans of horror, supernatural, or revenge stories.” –SLJ

Monahan portrays Bethan’s slow physical and emotional recoveries with nuance and sensitivity. Bethan’s righteous desire for retribution [is] tempered with an awareness of what she needs to protect and heal her own soul, and the conclusion leaves her looking toward the future with hope.”—Horn Book Reviews

“Monahan, who was inspired by the stories her grandmother told, approaches this subject, and Bethan’s culture, with delicacy and care…an eerie, unsettling novel that will linger long with readers.” —Booklist

“[Bethan’s] vulnerability, anger, and utter heartbreak bridge time to give voice to those experiencing and surviving assault and abuse.” —Bulletin

Dark, intense, and full of magic…a great addition for libraries with teen readers of dark magic and horror stories.” —VOYA

“Both witchy goodness and classic body horror. Not for the squeamish, The Hollow Girl serves up revenge to absolutely everyone deserving of punishment.”—Rue Morgue
