Product Details


★ ”Mott’s deft prose and well-written characters will keep readers engaged from start to frightening finish. This is the perfect read for people who love the chill of terror running down their backs.”
School Library Journal (starred review)

“An enthrallingly eerie tale. Part revenge wish-fulfillment, part mystery, Hush-a-Bye will keep readers both on the edge of their seats… and casting glances over their shoulders, just in case.”
Margaret Peterson Haddix, NYT bestselling author of The Shadow Children and The Missing series

“Blending themes of family and belonging, Jody Mott crafts a thrillingly scary read from the first page to the last. Hush-a-Bye unearths our deepest fears about innocence and childhood, good and evil, and challenges our perceptions of all of them.”  
Lesa Cline-Ransome, author of the Scott O’Dell Award for Historical Fiction winner Finding Langston

“This book hooked me in the first sentence, and it never let me go! Jam-packed with action and suspense, this fast-paced, creepy tale will keep you turning pages well past bedtime. An absolute must-read for any scary story fans!”
—Kat Shepherd, author of the Babysitting Nightmares series

“Mott weaves a deliciously chilling tale of facing foes both human and supernatural. Readers will love scaring themselves silly right up through the spooky, satisfying final scenes.”
Christina Uss, author of The Adventures of a Girl Called Bicycle and The Colossus of Roads

“Creepy dolls are a horror staple, and Hush-a-bye fits right in. A winning combination of sisterhood, school, and a spooky doll.”
Kirkus Reviews
