The Wicked Unseen
In 1996, sixteen-year-old Audre is having trouble fitting into her new town, where everyone seems to believe there's a secret, Satanic cult doing rituals in the woods. But when the pastor's daughter—Audre's secret crush—goes missing, she starts to wonder if the town's obsession with evil isn't covering up something far worse.
