DEVIL IN OHIO
The debut novel by DARIA POLATIN
“‘Devil in Ohio’ kept me up until 3 a.m. with the lights on – in a good way. It’s a haunting thriller for readers who like fear, humor, and heart in one package.”
– Meredith Goldstein, feature reporter and columnist for The Boston Globe, author of Can’t Help Myself and Chemistry Lessons.
“Gripping, urgent and addictive, ‘Devil in Ohio’ balances the dark exploration of cults with a compelling and often humorous take on teen social dynamics. This is the debut you won’t want to miss.”
– Aditi Khorana, author of critically acclaimed The Library of Fates and Mirror in the Sky.
“’Devil in Ohio’ will grip you with its frightening twists and turns, but it is its tenderness that will stay with you. Daria Polatin brings humor and heart to a story that shines some much-needed light on the darkness of our world.”
– Abdi Nazemian, author of People Magazine’s Teen Pick The Authentics and The Walk-In Closet.
“Deeply thoughtful, funny and human. ‘Devil in Ohio’ is a perfect blend of thriller, humor, character-driven drama, and good old fashioned storytelling.”
– Bekah Brunstetter, playwright, writer-producer of Emmy Award-winning This is Us on NBC and screenwriter of the film adaptation of bestseller The Secret.
“It’s fitting that the main character in ‘Devil in Ohio’ is a Hitchcock fan. This twisty psychological thriller has the jumps, shocks and brilliant ah-ha moments that make it feel like Hitch gone YA, complete with characters as lovable as all of his best.”
– Jessie Rosen, author of YA thriller Dead Ringer and Time Magazine’s top 25 blog, 20-Nothings.
