“What a striking literary arrival! Ariel Delgado Dixon is a prose stylist with a rare talent marked by atmospheric rhythm. This distinct tale of two sisters, crawling with tension, will carve its way into your dreams.”—Kali Fajardo-Anstine, author of Sabrina & Corina

“Eventful, complex, admirably structured, relentless, and spooky.”—Joy Williams, author of Harrow

“The high, subtle tension in Ariel Delgado Dixon’s fiction arises from the precision of her language. However wild the situations her characters find themselves in—and they find themselves in some wild ones indeed—her control never falters. She’s a master of cold light and moral ambiguity. . . . A new, uncompromising voice.”—Camille Bordas, author of How to Behave in a Crowd
“Terrifying and beautiful . . . an incredible debut . . . This evocative story of sisterhood, deception, and danger is written in incisive and brilliant prose. I could not put it down.”—Emily Ruskovich, author of Idaho

“A self-assured debut that explores complicated bonds of sisterhood, Dont Say I Didnt Warn You strikes the perfect balance of a story that feels both singular and universal. Dixon is a talented writer with a fresh voice that had me hooked from the first page.”—Sara Nović, author of True Biz

“Ariel Delgado Dixon is a writer of preternatural ability, and her first novel is a powerful expression of it. Dixon’s work shines a stark light on this new and dangerous strange world in which we find ourselves and does so with such insight, such grace. Dixon is a once-in-a-generation talent.”—Brady Udall, author of The Lonely Polygamist

“Consistently and devastatingly intriguing . . . A coming-of-age rife with destruction.”Kirkus Reviews

“Two sisters navigate childhood trauma in Dixon’s chilling, complex debut. . . . The layered story lines and Fawn’s shocking actions pay big dividends. Readers will be eager to see what the author does next.”Publishers Weekly
