‘The Girl In White’ by Lindsay Currie – New Release Book Review!

Hi all!

Today I am back to review another new release – The Girl in White by Lindsay Currie – which was just released last month. I was permitted to read an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) thanks to NetGalley. I’ve read one of her other books in the past and rated it very highly. She’s an excellent writer!

Mallory hasn’t quite adapted to life in her new town of Eastport yet. Maybe it’s because everyone is obsessed with keeping the town’s reputation as one of the most haunted places to visit. And thanks to the nightmares she’s had since arriving, Mallory is having a hard time sleeping. When she has a terrifying encounter with the same old woman from her dreams, she’s not sure what to do. With Eastport gearing up to celebrate the anniversary of their first recorded legend, Mallory is forced to investigate the one legend she’s always been secretly afraid of…Sweet Molly.

As always, I am going to provide my honest thoughts and let you know whether I think this middle-grade horror novel is worth checking out or not. Without further ado, let’s get into it!


Lindsay’s stories are always so wholesome. For an author who writes middle-grade horror, she is surprisingly adept at raising the hairs on the back of my neck. This book felt like an episode of Scooby Doo but in the best way. It was full of mystery, spooky vibes and a bunch of friends working together to undo a curse. The town of Eastport sounded like a fun place to visit. I enjoyed the vivid imagery of the food, stores and lighthouse. Mallory was a very sweet and insightful narrator. She knew when she had made mistakes and was self-aware enough to address them. My favourite part of the story was the ending. It wrapped up really nicely. I like when true positive change is enforced. Furthermore, the pacing was excellent, and it was an easy read.


My main issue with the book lay in the editing. I found lots of typos, characters names being switched around and in the Kindle version, Chapter 43 popped up twice. As a writer myself, I understand these things happen. I don’t feel it affected the value of the story, but it did take me out of the plot at times. I also wish there was more show and less tell. The character’s explained themselves a lot. I have faith the middle-grade audience could comprehend what is going on.


I gave this a 3.5/5 stars. I had a great time reading it.

I hope you enjoyed this honest review. Let me know your thoughts down below. I appreciate all feedback. Thanks for reading!

Peace & Love xoxo
