The Ring meets The Exorcist in this haunting story about an American boy whose last hope for protection lies with a vengeful ghost Okiku wants vengeance...and she gets it. Whenever there's a monster hurting a child-the same way she was hurt 300 years ago in Japan-her spirit is there to deliver punishment. But one American boy draws her like no other. The two are pulled into a world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from the American Midwest to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan. The boy is not a monster, but something evil writhes beneath his skin, trapped by a series of intricate tattoos. Can Okiku protect him? Or is her presence only bringing more harm?

I was really expecting this to be scarier. I did enjoy it quite a bit, but I picked it up because of the original version of the cover I saw, which looked like The Ring, and was expecting to be scared to pieces while reading it. I managed to fall asleep. Now, that is not completely the book's ...

3.5 The Girl from the Well: Or, the ghost from The Ring has feelings too
When the leaves begin to fall, and I flip my calendar to October, I bust out the spooky books. Some people have pumpkin spice, and I have creepy books. After hearing so many good things The Girl from the Well was at the top of my stack this year. Perhaps it was because my expectations were so high, ...

I remembered seeing a lot of this book when it was first published last year. To be completely honest, I didn't remember what those reviews said, but when I got an invitation to read the second book, The Suffering, I was immediately tempted to give it a try. Okiku is based on an old Japanese ghost...
