In a darker turn we start Claire Fraise’s thriller series They Stay this week. In a spooky turn of events we follow Shiloh as she tries to protect her little brother Max from their abusive father until Max is eventually kidnapped. Simultaneously, Francesca is speaking to ghosts and is disturbed by occurrences in the world of the dead. The two unlikely friends have to team up to both try to save Max and the eternal rest of the dead. Of course there is much more to discuss, as we break down the first half of this thriller.
Next week we will be reading chapters 20-39 of book 1 in the series, They Stay.
