A 5 star read

Imagine being the youngest child in a big family, and everyone just seems to forget that you exist. You go through life as a mere afterthought, an unwanted addition. 

That is exactly how David, the protagonist in Gulf, feels. His family barely notices he’s there, and being forgotten at random places is something he’s gotten used to. 

This summer is no different. His family packs up for their annual cabin vacation to the lake bringing the remaining children that haven’t left the nest yet. The cabin is the same as every year of David’s life, but this time the owner has left them a mysterious door to a mysterious addition. Of course, David’s annoying twin brothers make it their mission to find a way to open said door, but it’s David who finds the keys- and with it an entrance to a hellish world. Now it’s up to him to stop whatever is going on in Bizarro world.

Even though she has already authored fantasy novels, Gulf is Shelly Campbell’s first dive into the horror world. And might I add what an entrance she made! This book is fantastic, and so are the characters and the world building. I love her character David, and I just want to tell him everything will be alright. My heart hurts for him, and it made me so sad that his family simply didn’t care about him. This is such a solid coming of age story. 

I understand how David feels. Even though I didn’t grow up in a family quite that big, I think we all know how it feels to be forgotten. To feel insignificant at times. Now, imagine feeling like that all the time. Once David found the key and realized he had to protect his family, he didn’t stop at anything. He made it his mission to save his loved ones, even though he didn’t feel loved back

A big thanks to the publisher for the advanced copy!
