It's October. Time to get spooky. Or at least a little thrilled, yeah?
In honor of Halloween and the Texas Book Festival, which takes place Oct. 27 and 28 in Austin, the Austin360 Book Club is reading "Good As Gone" by Texas author Amy Gentry.
"Good As Gone" is a thriller set in Houston and tells the story of Julie Whitaker, a girl who was kidnapped from her bedroom when she was 13 years old then seemingly reappears on her family's doorstep years later. The publisher describes the book as "propulsive and suspenseful" and says it will appeal to fans of "Gone Girl" and "The Girl on the Train."
