Secrets can become deadly in Aysha A. Al Rowaished's shocking debut novel, Is It Scary?
When Diana loses her husband, she decides that the best place for her to heal is in the comfort of her childhood hometown. Thinking that a familiar place will bring comfort to both her and her three daughters, Diana has no idea that her past is darker than she remembers.
Before she even gets a chance to settle in, Diana's high school "friend," Michael, shows up unexpectedly to welcome her back to the neighborhood.
Things quickly spiral out of control, however, as Michael reminisces about their friendship with the troubled Susie. Seeing the disturbing effect these memories are beginning to have on Diana, he pushes things even further-reminding Diana of the cruelness and sick pranks she pulled purely to gain popularity at their local high school.
While Diana left all of the hurt feelings and horrific violence behind her when she went off to college, Michael and Susie were left alone with their tattered friendship and painful secrets.
Blaming Diana for Susie's unspeakable fate, Michael determines to exact revenge on her and her family for the wrongs that Diana inflicted so many years ago...
