Book Description

Six year old Jenny Barnes wakes up from night terrors only to find out that ghosts are real and there’s no such thing as safe.

She lives in a two hundred year old farmhouse with her large family, but they’re not alone. There’s a malevolent presence up in the attic and the forest surrounding the farm is alive with folks who just won't stay dead. Worse is the fact that the cattle have developed a taste for murder and are threatening to stampede. Well…that, and the fact that it seems her own father is trying to kill her.

All Jenny wants is a childhood--a few moments playing in the sunny yard with her sisters. To get one, all she'll have to do is survive.

And as Eddie, the one farmhand who’s on her side notes, “this old place is going over.”

Will anyone get out of there alive?

Scary, Creepy, Wonderful
Make sure you have a nightlight before you start this creepy, well-written thrill ride. Peazy Monellon is one to watch.

This review is from: Meany (Paperback)
Started reading and couldn't stop. With each word, the story came to life in my mind and I couldn't wait to hear more. Multifaceted work--a ghost story, a treatment on humanity and its capacity for cruelty and for never giving up on a new day.

Taut, Creepy and Impossible to Put Down 
By 
J.C. Mogensen This is definitely a "one more chapter book," as in "just one more chapter before I go to bed." Next thing you know, it's 2AM and you're knee-deep in thrills and turning the page as fast as you can...I highly recommend it, but plan on being tired the day after you get it.

This is definitely a "one more chapter book," as in "just one more chapter before I go to bed." Next thing you know, it's 2AM and you're knee-deep in thrills and turning the page as fast as you can. The horror, the characters, the pacing - everything is so well-crafted it's hard to believe this is the first book by Peazy Monellon. I highly recommend it, but plan on being tired the day after you get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars My not so MEANY review... January 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a very interesting, didn't want to put it down kind of story. I am quite impressed that it is from a first time author. I believe there is a lot of potentially great books coming our way from Peazy and I will definitely keep an eye out for more of her writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Edge of your seat, creepy! December 15, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I could not put this book down! Amazing book for a first time author! I don't know what it is but reading horror through a child's eyes makes everything so much creepier. Watch out for this up and coming author, Peazy Monellon!

Extremely basic synopsis for those not wanting to read my entire review: It feels like the author had several ideas for excellent horror books and tried to fit ALL those ideas into one novel, with some negative results.

If you are still reading, then here is the detailed review. This book does not quite live up to all of the hype in my opinion; however, I don't dislike it either. It is an average book that could have been great but fell short in places. There are some inconsistencies with some of the characters, some plot elements require the reader to suspend belief beyond a comfortable range, and at times, too many subplots are happening at once which muddles the story line.

The inconsistencies with some of the characters: the two little girls act and think as one would expect two little girls to act and think, but not consistently. At times, they showed a teenage to adult comprehension with both their thought processes and actions. Because of this, I was unable to form a clear picture in my mind of what these girls 'look' like. That's problematic for any reader when they are unable to really visualize a character. The author did do a good job with the development of the other major characters to her credit; however, as the story really revolves around the two little girls, it's these characters that the readers need to connect with the most.

As for suspension of belief beyond a comfortable range. Native American culture, regardless of tribe, is not vengeful, spiteful or evil in nature.

Not only is this an interesting, pulls you in and grabs you story, it has great imagination and is very artfully written! I truly missed the characters for days after finishing the book. This author is definitely one that I plan to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good and Interesting Story February 8, 2012
By Amy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a good book, it is well written and interesting, however I was expecting a cozy horror/haunting story. Though it is about a haunted house, I would not consider this "cozy". The first half of the book contains graphic details of child and animal abuse, so I would not suggest this book to people that are sensitive to that subject. The second half of the book was not so bad and all in all I will give this book four stars out of five.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read. April 18, 2013
By bookmom
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed the story "Meany". Peazy made you truly hate the father, and feel for the mother and children. While I dislike books where children are in distress, this novel told you a story that could be happening right now. It makes you realize that we should be watching the children around us, and if we feel something is wrong, help, so that real life doesn't end like stories often do. Good job on your first novel.
