Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

"You stop fearing the Devil when you're holding his hand..."
Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White's sleepy, seaside town...until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet's crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more? Violet's grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery...who makes you want to kiss back. Violet's already so knee-deep in love, she can't see straight. And that's just how River likes it.
A gothic thriller romance with shades of Stephen King and F. Scott Fitzgerald, set against a creepy summertime backdrop--a must-read for fans of "Beautiful Creatures," "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer," and "Anna Dressed in Blood."

Reviews

"Tucholke debuts with a thoroughly eerie novel . . . a chilling supernatural exploration of free will and reality's fluidity."--Publishers Weekly "Tucholke's story of devils, innocence, and family secrets is lush and rhythmic as a song. Seductive with a capital 'S.'" (Kendare Blake, author of "Anna Dressed in Blood" and "Girl of Nightmares") ""Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" will slip under your skin and capture the darkest corners of your imagination. A hypnotic, terrifying debut." (Nova Ren Suma, author of "Imaginary Girls") "A rich blend of gothic horror and modern romance, studded with nods toward literary, cinematic and musical classics. A lush setting and provocative characters elevate this debut above others."--Kirkus Reviews "Tucholke's gothic tone, plot, and setting, complete with a deteriorating estate full of dark family secrets, is reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier or YA fare such as Kami Garcia's and Margaret Stohl's Beautiful Creatures. Violet's narration is frank and perceptive, livened with humor and an almost poetically descriptive lilt. . . . Give this one to fans of creepy mysteries."--School Library Journal (starred review) "A stunning debut with complex characters, an atmospheric setting, and a distinct voice. . . . Tucholke has real talent."--VOYA (starred review) "Tucholke strikes just the right balance between the windswept, seaside setting and Violet's interior struggles with right and wrong (and wrong-but-oh-so-right feelings toward dangerous River)."--BCCB "Moments of horror nestle against warm, dreamy kisses. . . . The faded elegance that permeates almost every page elevates this above more generic offerings of its type."--Booklist (starred review) "A perfect read for stormy summer nights."--The Boston Globe "Tucholke will cast a spell on readers with her magnificent prose, fascinating histories of residents in the seaside town, and a boy with a disturbing ability rarely seen in today's young adult books."--Shelf Awareness "Mysterious hotties, eerie events and gothic supernatural romance in a crumbling mansion on the lonely coast of Maine. . .
