THE GIRL IN THE WALL: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
THE GIRL IN THE WALL
BY DAPHNE BENEDIS-GRAB

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Ariel's birthday weekend looks to be the event of the season, with a private concert by rock star Hudson Winters on the grounds of her family's east coast estate, and all of Ariel's elite prep school friends in attendance. The only person who's dreading the party is Sera, Ariel's former best friend, whose father is forcing her to go. Sera has been the school pariah since she betrayed Ariel, and she now avoids Ariel and their former friends. Thrown together, Ariel and Sera can agree on one thing: this could be one very long night.

They have no idea just how right they are.

Only moments after the concert begins and the lights go down, thugs open fire on parents and schoolmates alike, in a plot against Ariel's father that quickly spins out of control. As the entire party is taken hostage, the girls are forced apart. Ariel escapes into the hidden tunnels in the family mansion, where she and Sera played as children. Only Sera, who forges an unlikely alliance with Hudson Winters, knows where her friend could be. As the industrial terrorist plot unravels and the death toll climbs, Ariel and Sera must recall the sisterhood that once sustained them as they try to save themselves and each other on the longest night of their lives

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Daphne Benedis-Grab earned an MFA from The New School in creative writing and her thesis became her first book for teens, Alive and Well in Prague, New York. She has built houses for Habitat for Humanity and taught adult literacy classes, and now lives in New York City with her husband, two kids, and a very spoiled cat.  

To read more about Daphne, visit her website and see her "Bio" HERE.

PRAISE FOR THE GIRL IN THE WALL:
"Quickly paced and without a dull moment, Benedis-Grab manages to write a disturbing, yet entertaining, novel that will entrance future readers. Budding young romance adds an extra touch to the already thriving story line, and the will to survive makes this an inspiring read. I recommend The Girl in the Wall to readers addicted to fast-paced storytelling and action. Benedis-Grab's novel is a must-read." --Blogcritics.org

"Two high school seniors re-evaluate their failed friendship under dangerous circumstances. Benedis-Grab alternates between the two girls' perspectives; nearly every chapter ends with a cliffhanger, keeping tension high. The action and high stakes should keep readers engaged." --Publishers Weekly

This contemporary YA novel packs a punch. Using alternating perspectives - one of my favorite devices! - Benedis-Grab weaves a compelling, scary tale of one fateful night in the lives of two former best friends. Also, it's gratifying to see teenage girl characters kicking butt while also patching up their friendship." --Persephone Magazine

"Daphne Benedis-Grab's debut YA novel is filled with suspense, danger, and murder as the clock ticks through a deadly night. From the very first chapter, I was hooked, and the story got more intense every page! It's an absolutely thrilling ride, and I look forward to Ms. Benedis-Grab's next foray into young adult literature!" --Jack and Jill Magazine

"This book gripped me from the beginning and I finished it in a day. The action was intense but well-paced, the characters were realistic and meaningful, the consequences were honest. If you're looking for a different YA book, try this one." --Book Sojourner
