A review of The Unmaking of June Farrow by Adrienne Young

June Farrow has started hearing and seeing things that aren't there - at least they aren't as far as anyone else can tell. Though the realization that she's perhaps imagining things worries June, it isn't surprising. According to town lore, June's mother went mad and then disappeared when June was young, leaving her to be raised by her grandmother. Now her grandmother has died and June fears that the mental illness that took her mother will take her too. But a message left to June by her grandmother leads her to realize that the things she's seeing and hearing aren't so imaginary after all. As she investigates the clues left by her grandmother June finds that a murder in the past has connections to the present and it will take giving into the hallucinations for June to discover if there's a way to escape the family curse.

Young blends mystery, magic and romance and keeps the reader guessing until the end. A perfect read for these days that are growing shorter and cooler.
