On the surface, The Shadows We Know By Heart by Jennifer Park, is a unique story that will catch readers’ attentions because it hinges on the idea that sasquatches are real. But if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that it’s a haunting and luminescent novel in which a girl’s complicated family life starts to unravel after she finds herself falling for a mysterious boy who lives in the forest behind her house. This story has an abundance of layers to it: a mystery, a romance, a paranormal aspect, and a ton of family drama. It also currently has 4.56 stars on Goodreads, and as you probably know, the promise of sasquatches alone isn’t enough to give a book that kind of rating. This is the real deal. It’s a read you won’t regret or forget.
