Publisher's summary

The Gray House is an astounding tale of how what others understand as liabilities can be leveraged into strengths.

Bound to wheelchairs and dependent on prosthetic limbs, the physically disabled students living in the House are overlooked by the Outsides. Not that it matters to anyone living in the House, a hulking old structure that its residents know is alive. From the corridors and crawl spaces to the classrooms and dorms, the House is full of tribes, tinctures, scared teachers, and laws - all seen and understood through a prismatic array of teenagers' eyes.

But student deaths and mounting pressure from the Outsides put the time-defying order of the House in danger. As the tribe leaders struggle to maintain power, they defer to the awesome power of the House, attempting to make it through days and nights that pass in ways that clocks and watches cannot record.

Is there supposed to be a plot?

Couldn't stand the narrators over-annunciations, and there is more empty detail than actual story. 10 chapters in I'm still trying to figure out if there's a plot or if it's just bland babble. Couldn't finish it.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.

I'm still trying to figure out what I just read.

I think some of the magic got lost in translation, and the narrator didn't really help to distinguish one character from another. Add to that the lack of linear time and the unreliable narrators, and a premise t
