Congratulations to Ana Reyes, who spent much of her childhood in Amherst, on the incredible success of her first book. A New York Times bestseller, the book takes place down the road in Pittsfield (where Reyes enjoyed visits with her grandparents), with a few scenes in Amherst. Like the author, the main character, Maya, has a Guatemalan father and grew up in Western Massachusetts. The thriller is deliciously creepy and surprising.
