OLDER FICTION
Kuehn, Stephanie

Delicate Monsters

(2) YA Seventeen-year-old Sadie toys with acquaintance Emerson, gleefully reminding him of sadistic childhood activities and threatening to reveal a more recent act of sexual violation he committed. Meanwhile, Sadie feels protective of Emerson's brother Miles as he endures bullying, unexplained illnesses, and bloody visions. The three teens' intersecting stories build to a shocking conclusion. Kuehn unflinchingly explores the darkest places of the human psyche.
