Introduction by Christopher Golden. Cover and interior art by Polly Morris.

Seventeen-year-old Anna has a space in her memory of a night her brain won’t let her remember, a night that devastated her life and forced her to drop out of high school. Her grandmother, Evelyn, is slowly losing her memories to Alzheimer’s. When the family moves into a forgotten house on the outskirts of Evelyn’s home town, it's supposed to be a fresh start and a quieter life for all of them.

But when Evelyn starts behaving strangely in her lost moments, it’s Anna who witnesses it. It’s Anna who helps her. And as she’s drawn into life in the town and learns some of its recent gruesome history, she can’t help but being to wonder if the dead are trying to talk through Evelyn’s empty spaces. And if so, what is it they’re trying to tell her?

‘Laced with a creeping dread that doesn't let up until the gut-wrenching ending, THEY SAY A GIRL DIED HERE ONCE is a searing, smart, and scary exploration of family, trauma, and the poisonous power of secrets. Another brilliant, blistering read from Pinborough.’  ― Sarah Lotz, author of THE THREE
