The Haunting of Hill House meets Get Out in this chilling YA psychological thriller and modern take on the classic haunted house story from New York Times bestselling author Tiffany D. Jackson!

Marigold is running from ghosts. The phantoms of her old life keep haunting her, but a move with her newly blended family from their small California beach town to the embattled Midwestern city of Cedarville might be the fresh start she needs. Her mom has accepted a new job with the Sterling Foundation that comes with a free house, one that Mari now has to share with her bratty ten-year-old stepsister, Piper.

The renovated picture-perfect home on Maple Street, sitting between dilapidated houses, surrounded by wary neighbors has its . . . secrets. That's only half the problem: household items vanish, doors open on their own, lights turn off, shadows walk past rooms, voices can be heard in the walls, and there's a foul smell seeping through the vents only Mari seems to notice. Worse: Piper keeps talking about a friend who wants Mari gone.

But "running from ghosts" is just a metaphor, right?

As the house closes in, Mari learns that the danger isn't limited to Maple Street. Cedarville has its secrets, too. And secrets always find their way through the cracks.

Gr 8 Up—Mari has moved with her family to the Midwest for a fresh start from her past substance abuse.
Immediately, she finds the neighbors and the house unsettling. As Mari discovers more about the house's history,
she begins to believe that it is haunted. Combining the eerie racial overtones of Get Out with elements of classic
ghost stories, Jackson's novel will leave readers thinking long after the last page is turned.

I had no idea what to expect when I started this book. It's so much more than a ghost story. ( )

I also was really hesistant to read this book. I don't love horror but this book was a fast read and i loved listenign to it. Our main character life is very compciated and being in her head was a tad challenging at points. But as a lead character i was captrued. I also loved how this story progressed and loved thee quick twusts and turns i did not see coming! I loved the ending and it def wass worth a read!! I liked the endinfg of this one it did not feel as open as grown!! ( )

Content warnings: teen addiction & recovery, talks of overdose, mental health illness (severe anxiety), broken family system due to prison system/laws, & brief mentions of child sexual abuse.
