Spotlight: Dollhouse

Doll House
By Anya Allen

Book blurb:

She searches the wild forests for the remains of a friend who vanished there on a hiking trip. What she discovers is the terrifying answer to what really happened to her friend. And now there's no way back and no way out.
For fifteen year old Cassie Claiborne, there's only one good thing about moving from steamy Miami to the wild inland forests of Australia--the even wilder Ethan McAllister. But Ethan already has a girlfriend--Aisha Damaj--the girl with a hundred different moods a minute.

When Aisha goes missing on a hiking trip in the local mountains--presumed dead--the whole town points a finger at Ethan. 

Cassie defends Ethan fiercely. She's just about the only friend he has left. But is Cassie letting her feelings for Ethan cloud her judgment?

Does something dark lurk out there in the forests? Aisha isn't the first girl to vanish there in recent years.

There's only one way to find out--go back to the forests.



Author Bio: 

Anya Allyn lives near the beach an hour north of Sydney, Australia. She loves anywhere outdoors that is natural and wild. Or anywhere indoors where Black Forest Cake is on offer. She has four amazing boys and enjoys their energy and happy-go-lucky spirit, and wishes she could plug into some of that energy on days when her 'get up and go' has packed up and gone! She is a former Features' Editor/Community Manager for a media organisation in Australia. The idea for Doll House was born after a trip to the beautiful Barrington Tops region of Australia--sparked by places there such as Devils Hole, Ladies Well and Thunderbolt's Way.
