The Girl in the Well Is Me

The Girl in the Well Is Me

by Karen Rivers

Newcomer Kammie Summers has fallen into a well during a fake initiation into a club whose members have no intention of letting her join. Now Kammie’s trapped in the dark, growing increasingly claustrophobic, and waiting to be rescued—or possibly not. As hours pass, the reality of Kammie’s predicament mixes with her memories of the highlights and lowlights of her life so far, including the reasons her family moved to this new town in the first place, which began when her father was arrested for embezzlement. And as she begins to run out of oxygen, Kammie starts to imagine she has company, including a French-speaking coyote and goats that just might be zombies. In the well, Kammie comes to terms with why she is there and who she is going to be when she gets out, and in order to do that, she must figure out how her dad can be a bad guy and still be the father she loves.
