Excerpt: THE KILLING JAR by Jennifer Bosworth

When I shared the recent excerpt of Kim Savage's AFTER THE WOODS, and mentioned that both it and another dark contemporary YA, THE KILLING JAR, were going to be in my current TBR, I had a request to share a teaser of it as well. And I am doing so gladly, because frankly, I think The Killing Jar has a killer (ba dum tss) opening!
Let me know your thoughts in the comments, and if you want to see more of my thoughts on this book, make sure to check out my most recent The Last Five Books video!

about THE KILLING JAR by Jennifer Bosworth
Get It | Add It
“I try not to think about it, what I did to that boy.”

Seventeen-year-old Kenna Marsden has a secret.

She’s haunted by a violent tragedy she can’t explain. Kenna’s past has kept people—even her own mother—at a distance for years. Just when she finds a friend who loves her and life begins to improve, she’s plunged into a new nightmare. Her mom and twin sister are attacked, and the dark powers Kenna has struggled to suppress awaken with a vengeance.

On the heels of the assault, Kenna is exiled to a nearby commune, known as Eclipse, to live with a relative she never knew she had. There, she discovers an extraordinary new way of life as she learns who she really is, and the wonders she’s capable of. For the first time, she starts to feel like she belongs somewhere. That her terrible secret makes her beautiful and strong, not dangerous. But the longer she stays at Eclipse, the more she senses there is something malignant lurking underneath it all. And she begins to suspect that her new family has sinister plans for her…

Disclosure: This is NOT a sponsored video. I did receive an advance copy of this book from the publisher, for the purposes of a review.
