Whitewashed by Amy C. Blake

Whitewashed
by
Amy C. Blake
(Mantle Rock Publishing 2015)

Not many books can bridge the gap between young adult and contemporary genres; but, Amy C. Blake has written such a novel.

Whitewashed is a story set in a small, Deep South town of Mississippi called Hades, and there are dark secrets lurking beneath the college.

There are mysterious things happening.
There are spiritual soul searchings.
There is one family's lineage tied to one college, Verity.

This novel is everything but typical. All plots are delivered neatly and with satisfying results. The characters are well developed. The pace and setting written with exquisite detail.

I found that Amy C. Blake wrote a great example of Deep South culture. To me, she rivals Terri Blackstock at her best and has quickly made a fan of me.
