Praise for Kelly deVos

“Bold, unique, and completely original, Fat Girl On A Plane is unafraid to stand up and take action. A debut both spirited and inventive, much like its indomitable heroine” 

— Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts

“Stunning, fast-paced, and as twisty as the trees in the creepy forest. I have loved every page and every surprise of this five-star read!”         — Natasha Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“With fang-sharp dialogue, characters that refuse to be ignored, and a plot featuring more twists and turns than a creepy castle hallway, Go Hunt Me is a wild ride of a horror novel that will have you seeing shadows around every corner. Prepare to be kept up way past your bedtime” 
— Ginny Myers Sain, author of Dark and Shallow Lies
