The Cellar

“Lily?”

My stomach dropped as a tall, dark-haired man stepped into view. Had he been hiding between the trees?

“No. Sorry.” Gulping, I took a step back. “I’m not Lily.”

He shook his head, a satisfied grin on his face. “No. You are Lily.”

“I’m Summer. You have the wrong person.” You utter freak!

I could hear my pulse crashing in my ears. How stupid to give him my real name. He continued to stare at me, smiling. It made me feel sick.

“You are Lily,” he repeated.

Before I could blink, he threw his arms forward and grabbed me. I tried to shout, but he clasped his hand over my mouth, muffling my screams. My heart raced. I’m going to die.

For months Summer is trapped in a cellar with the man who took her—and three other girls: Rose, Poppy, and Violet. His perfect, pure flowers. His family. But flowers can’t survive long cut off from the sun, and time is running out…

  1. ***YAWN*** Extremely repetitive. I feel as if Ms. Preston really could have benefitted from a better proofreader. There were numerous errors, from using the wrong word (something spelled similarly to what she obviously wanted to say), to words being omitted from sentences (which were small enough to still figure out).I would not recommend this book. It sounded so intriguing, but really bored me.

  2. no words about how amazing a read this was. I have no words to how ‘The Cellar’ by Natasha Preston, impacted on me. It was a truly emotional and pivotal book that was emotional exquisite and just a gripping read. I really fell in love with reading the whole narrative. It was real, it was the truth that has gone untold in so many stories. 

  3. If you enjoy slamming your head into a wall repeatedly, then buy this book! The Cellar is an awful story with awful characters and awful writing. If you enjoy reading at a junior high school level and lack any sense of imagination, than perhaps this story is for you.
