About We Are the Beasts

When a series of brutal, mysterious deaths start plaguing the countryside and whispers of a beast in the mountains reach the quiet French hamlet of Mende, most people believe it’s a curse—God’s punishment for their sins.

But to sixteen-year-old Joséphine and her best friend, Clara, the beast isn’t a curse. It’s an opportunity.

For years, the girls of Mende have been living in a nightmare—fathers who drink, brothers who punch, homes that feel like prisons—and this is a chance to get them out.

Using the creature’s attacks as cover, Joséphine and Clara set out to fake their friends’ deaths and hide them away until it’s safe to run. But escape is harder than they thought. If they can’t brave a harsh winter with little food… If the villagers discover what they’re doing… If the beast finds them first…

Those fake deaths might just become real ones.

What people are saying…

“A gay thriller period drama with lowkey eat the rich vibes.”

“You managed to make me cry! In a horror YA novel! That I really didn’t expect.

Compulsively readable smackdowns of…the patriarchy are the cornerstone of your works, and I am ENDLESSLY here for it!”

“Fantastically accessible and deeply examined.”

Pre-order now to be the first to get it when it comes out on November 19, 2024. (And psst…sometimes pre-orders ship early.)

You can also add it on Goodreads now.

Cover design by the exceptional Jorge Mascarenhas.
