Product description


"Atmospheric and chilling, Harrow Lake plumbs the depths of horror." --Mindy McGinnis, author of The Female of the Species

You're going to want to read this one with all the lights on. --Cat Winters, author of In the Shadow of Blackbirds

"A sympathetic, quick-witted heroine [who] at first refuses to be terrified[, in] a sinister story that slowly builds to a heart-pounding climax." --Kirkus

"A thrilling mindbender; the scare factors are executed with just the right amount of flair, indulging in a bit of campiness only to pull back for some true terror. Lola is intriguing as a distrustful, prickly girl who both hates and yearns for her distant father, and she's easy to root for . . . Particularly satisfying." --BCCB

A captivating and creeping mystery full of brilliantly twisting turns and dark secrets. You will race through this chilling, thrilling book. --Holly Jackson, author of A Good Girl's Guide to Murder

Ellis brings the claustrophobia of pulp fandom front and centre in this masterpiece of a novel --Dawn Kurtagich, author of The Dead House

A gripping tale that keeps readers turning the pages. --SLJ

When you start Harrow Lake, be prepared to put everything else on hold. Lola is a total badass, a teenage main character you will root for, and Kat Ellis pulls you alongside her at a breakneck speed. --Ann Dávila Cardinal, author of Five Midnights

Eerie storytelling and [a] thrilling backdrop . . . Hand to fans of Kate Alice Marshall's Rules for Vanishing. --Booklist

"Wonderfully creepy and atmospheric, with an unforgettable boogeyman bound to give you jittery nightmares--when you can finally fall asleep." --Emma Berquist, author of Devils Unto Dust --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

An absolute fave! If you’ve not checked this book out I highly recommend!

After an accident with Lola’s Father she is sent to live with her estranged Grandmother in Harrow Lake which is famous for a film directed by her Father. The Nightjar which starred Lola’s mother, who went missing years before, has a cult following and is celebrated in the town every year. Something is off in Harrow Lake. Why is there a teeth tree? What are all these jitter bugs? And who or what is Mr Jitters? 😱

”It’s this place, this town where time doesn’t move forward like it’s supposed to. Where stories get stuck in your head like a tooth burrowed deep in your flesh. I feel like Harrow Lake is working its way inside me”
