Dove recaps The Lifeguard by Richie Tankersley Cusick, a book so painfully obvious, it practically announces the killer on the first page. But, you know, red herrings, hot cheerful boys, intense quiet boys, and people who run away to privately owned islands. Your standard baffling Cusick fare.

Funhouse by Diane HohPoint Horror Recaps: Recap #1: Funhouse by Diane Hoh (Dove on 8 Jan 2013)
Dove recaps Funhouse by Diane Hoh, wherein the lead character isn't a wet rag with the intelligence of rotten milk, the setting is pretty cool, and Gina, the BFF, rocks. Sadly, this will be the last time we enjoy such luxuries. Bit of a shame this is the case on recap #1.
