Six days ago, Liddy became part of an experiment that turned humans into cannibals. But when she discovers that her father is the head scientist behind these twisted trials, Liddy has to battle the Lab—and her dad—with a rogue researcher and a bloodthirsty pack of kids and pets. In the end, Liddy must decide whether she wants to return to a “normal” life or stay a cannibal forever.
Wilder Girls meets Stranger Things
They have permission to kill us.
They have the power to burn our tidy brick houses, to let the pink bedroom wallpaper blister into wet November smoke. They have the power to melt our picnic tables, our swing sets, and our bicycles down to nothing more than mangled bits of metal and ash. They have permission to lie. Someone somewhere gave the Lab the absolute authority to wipe away the sound of our footsteps, our laughter, and our screams.
And why not? We’re toxic, right?
Better to turn away. Better to let them hunt us down one-by-one until we’re nothing more than shadow and cinders. Better for you. Better for your own safety. But if you’re reading this, you should know that six days ago we were all more than test subjects. We were daughters and sons and crushes and friends.
They fooled us with love. They told us we were special. They promised to protect us.
And we believed them.
Now they want our silence and our shame. I’ll give them neither. Instead, I’ll give you my story—the journal entries, the newspapers, the letters, the long unspooling of memories I once thought were mine alone. Only then can you decide who is still human and who is a beast with no soul.
