Editorial Reviews

With her voice perfectly pitched to capture the teenage angst of protagonist Martha, narrator Liisa Ivary quickly plunges the listener into the complications of Martha's life as she and her father move in to a new house with her stepmother and stepbrother Conor. From the beginning, Martha knows that the house is evil, and she's not surprised to find out that someone has been murdered there. When the practical jokes and creepy phone calls begin, she's sure that these aren’t just Halloween tricks. Listeners will enjoy Ivary's expert contrast between Martha’s internal narrative, delivered with wholesome charm, and the encroaching evil that threatens her.

Publisher's Summary

The first time Martha sees the house, she knows it's evil. So she's not surprised when she finds out that someone was murdered in it. She also thinks that someone is watching her. Martha's pretty certain that this Halloween is going to be the scariest of her life, and possibly her last.

It’s a good book

I feel like it was kinda left on a cliffhanger but that’s probably just me.

Great Story

As a teacher, this has been one of my favorites to share with young people. It gives subtle clues along the way leading to a big surprise ending.
