There’s Someone Inside Your House
When students from Makani’s high school start being murdered one by one in grisly slayings, she can’t help but let the guilt of her past resurface. But it’s not just the slayings that have her unnerved; it’s everything, from the chosen victims to her friend’s disapproval of the new boy, Ollie. Then items start rearranging themselves in her house, without her there. Now, as her feelings start to intensify for Ollie, so does the realization that it might not just be her past that is hunting her down; it could be the killer as well.
Chilling to the bone, There’s Someone Inside Your House delivers fast-paced, intense horror. Shocking and horrifying from the very start, the book throws readers right into the middle of a killing spree, with no detail left behind.
Written in an authentic teenage voice, this book is structured for a teenage audience, with teenage language, feelings, emotions, and events. Stephanie Perkins has a talent for wording, giving relatable, authentic characters. Better suited for a mature young adult audience, this book does contain scenes and events that can be seen as unsettling, but it also perfectly adheres to the true genre specifics, reminiscent of an early 90’s slasher film.
Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
