When No One Is Watching by Alyssa Cole

A familiar story of gentrification wreaking havoc on a well-established neighborhood takes a turn as a more sinister element slinks in, much like the invaders swarming this Brooklyn block. Cole’s enrapturing narrative hooked me right away; she had me whispering frantic advice to Sydney and Theo and muttering choice words at Kim and other new neighbors as though my input might help. This book will draw you in, grab a tight hold, and leave you wondering what else lurks behind the coded language of your neighbors on NextDoor.
