The Boy Meets Girl Massacre (Annotated)
Gripping, grisly, and keeps you guessing until the shocking end
Noelle Dixon takes a summer nightshift job at the infamous Boy Meets Girl Inn, even though she's well aware of the horrifying murders that happened there decades ago. That's why she has a diary--to write down everything she experiences in case things go bump in the night. But the inexplicable freezing drafts, the migrating rotten-flesh smell, and the misplaced personal items don't really scare her. Noelle has bigger problems: her father's failing health, her friend Alfred's inappropriate crush, and the sore spot on the back of her head that keeps getting worse.
When a party commemorating the anniversary of the original killings ends in a ghoulish bloodbath, Noelle's diary becomes the key piece of evidence for investigators. But the cryptic entries suggest that there's more to the bizarre case than can be rationally explained . . .
