Looking for a deliciously soapy page-turner about the corrupt lives of the rich and powerful? Check out this excerpt of Lili Peloquin’s new YA novel The Innocents. Alice and Charlie are extremely close sisters whose lives are torn apart when their parents divorce — and their mother immediately remarries a somewhat creepy guy, Richard Flood, who’s still haunted by the deaths of his first wife and daughter. When the girls are forced to move to his summer estate in wealthy Serenity Point, they know they’ll never fit in… but they can’t help enjoying their privileged new lifestyle, even as they make some frightening discoveries about their connection with their dead stepsister Camilla. Just in time for Halloween!
