Good Neighbors: A Novel
Equal parts dystopian nightmare and suburban horror, Sarah Langan’s Good Neighbors will cause you to take a long, hard look at the people who live on your street.
Gertie and Arlo Wilde just want what all Americans want: a nice house in a quiet neighborhood with good schools, a life safe enough to let kids run free without adult supervision, and neighbors who look out for one another. They do not find this on Maple Street. The Wilde family isn’t polished or clean enough to fit in with the Schroeders, the Walshes, and the Harrisons. At first, the Maple Street crew is welcoming, but when Rhea Schroeder, the queen bee, turns her back on Gertie, the rest of the families follow suit.
The heat of a stifling summer and the appearance of a dangerous sinkhole open the Maple Streeters up to one another’s secrets, each darker than the last, and when the last veil falls, no one is safe. Good Neighbors is a psychological and spectacular read that will keep you up long after dark just to see what happens.
