Praise for The Caging at Deadwater Manor
Locked away by her father, it was scary and fascinating to read what she goes through in a psychiatric hospital."
This book is so, so good. One of the most suspenseful young adult books I've ever read. Right up there with Thirteen Reasons Why and Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls. Even if you don't normally read YA, you should still find it highly enjoyable if you like suspense. In some ways it reminded me of that movie, Room, where the woman and her child are locked up in that basement. If you liked that, I think you'll like this. I really can't say enough good things about it." - Michael McCarthy
As a high school English teacher, I appreciate an author who writes compelling fiction for older teen readers. Sandie Will has done just that, and I feel the mysterious, unsettling tone of The Caging at Deadwater Manor will keep teens turning those pages." - Beth Seletos
I found myself rooting for and afraid for Jeannie every minute. That's what makes a great 'thriller' for me!"
