Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Delilah Blue would do anything for her crush, Gavin. She is sent to boarding school after beating up bullies who attacked him. Seven years later, she is back in Kansas and her obsession with Gavin hasn't changed. The two become inseparable. But a dark force threatens their relationship—the house that Gavin lives in. It provides everything that Gavin could possibly want and need in life. But the house doesn't want Delilah to be part of his life. When it gets mad, it becomes possessed and terrible things happen to the two teens. Gavin soon realizes how abnormal this is and begins to wonder about what happened to his mother, of whom he has only vague memories. What will happen when he graduates and leaves for college? Will the house let him go? This eerie work by the author team of Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings is told in chapters that alternate between Delilah's and Gavin's accounts. With a swiftly moving plot and eerie elements that will surely raise goose bumps, this novel can be enjoyed by voracious horror fans and reluctant readers alike. VERDICT Give to teens who enjoy spine-tingling haunted house and ghost stories like The Old Willis Place by Mary Downing Hahn (Clarion, 2004) and The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong (HarperCollins, 2008).—Shannon Seglin, San Antonio Public Library


“An entrancing, darkly romantic story that's equal parts beautiful and chilling. Once you enter The House, you'll be forever in its thrall. Welcome to your next obsession.” (Alexandra Bracken, New York Times bestselling author of The Darkest Minds series )

"Lauren taps into classic haunted-house memes, drawing those ideas to the max as they imbue House with a distinct, sinister personality. Intrigue builds, and suspense slowly creeps in....Don't read it at night." (Kirkus Reviews [STARRED REVIEW])

"It will send chills down your spine—or worse if House gets angry." (Booklist)

"With a swiftly moving plot and eerie elementsthat will surely raise goose bumps, this novel can be enjoyed by voracioushorror fans and reluctant readers alike." (School Library Journal)

“Masterfully told and wholly original, THE HOUSE is a bold new take on the haunted house genre. Don’t read it at home alone. Or at night. Or at all, if you scare easy. You’ve been warned!” (Ransom Riggs, New York Times bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children )
