One reviewer said: "I read this book when I was in my early teens and that has been over 25 years ago. There were times when I was afraid to turn to the next page because I was afraid of what was going to happen. That being that, I still finished the book in one night. There is nothing that I like better than a truly, scary book and 'Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane' is definitely that."
Another review: "This story of a 13 year old girl all alone in the world is heartbreaking, until you realize that she is NOT a normal girl. Her keen intelligence and maturity draw you in and, while you feel sympathy for her, you are also a little scared just the same. This short, yet utterly sinister story will have all readers hooked until the end. I've had this book for years and re-read it all the time. Must have for suspense-enthusiasts."
This new digital edition includes a Foreword by the Author with a short history of the novel's evolution.
