Gr 10 Up

In this adaptation of a popular computer game, teenager Keiichi Maebara has recently moved to the small, isolated village of Hinamizawa. He becomes friends with a group of flirtatious girls and settles into the daily life, becoming especially close to Rena. However, he suspects that the girls are hiding a dark secret when he finds out that every year, on the same day, one villager dies and one disappears. Is there a curse, or are the villagers behind the murders and the disappearances? Even worse, could Keiichi's charming friends be demons? The story starts out quietly, but the horror steadily builds, aided by the expressive illustrations. In one memorable part, the black-and-white pages give way to a color insert in which Rena's wide-eyed smile becomes a vicious scowl. Some of the violent murders are graphically depicted, and one girl's character is mainly defined by her pride in her large bosom.-Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
