Angela Rodriguez and her friends aren’t sure what they want out of life now that they’ve graduated high school, but they think there is plenty of time to figure it all out. When a trip to an abandoned elementary school leads to a break-in, they discover an old gym parachute.
Raising the fabric above their heads, the group expects it to balloon out around them like it did when they were younger. But instead, the parachute reveals alternate universes and terrifying worlds.
There’s only one rule…
DON’T LET GO
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
"Holly once again blows us away and this time into the cosmic realm. Parachute is a fantastical little novella that’s got more twists and turns than a tilt-a-whirl. Refreshingly scary in a way I haven’t experienced in quite a while. I’ve got nothing but wonderful things to say about Holly’s writing and this one is just further proof that she’s one of the very best in the game. Parachute is one of those stories that you’ll need to use a spatula to help pick up your jaw off the floor.
"One part The House of Leaves in its wickedly sly disorientation, one part We Need to Do Something in its steadily building mood of encroaching menace, Parachute will satisfy fans of all types of horror and suspense: it’s a fresh tale of nostalgia that goes horribly wrong in the most delicious way."
-Rebecca Rowland, author of The View Master
"Parachute is a creepy, mind-bending novella that will have you second guessing your pursuit of reliving your past through nostalgia. When a group of friends discover a dusty old parachute like the one we all used in grade school gym class, the nightmares begin to unfold and no one is safe. This was a solid story with interesting flawed characters and an original premise of turning something so mundane into a terrifying killer."
-Joshua Marsella, author of Scratches
"Parachute is a compelling YA read with an almost fairy tale quality to it. Who knew an innocent childhood game could turn out to be so utterly chilling? Devoured in one sitting, Garcia has created a great piece of creepy - and original - escapism."
-Stephanie Ellis, author of Paused
