Mostly skimmed this one too. Just not the right time for me with this book. ( )

An incredibly different sort of novel. What is it like when a girl is living in the walls of a house as a response to the loss of her parents and the teens of the new owners keep thinking that there is someone there. When they try to discover the person they suspect is living in their home, they inadvertently invite in another, greater threat.

Absolutely had my attention all the way through. ( )

This has a great premise, but the writing just didn't sell me on it. Elsie is eleven and lives inside the walls of her old house. She's been there ever since she ran away from the foster home she was living in after the death of her parents in a car accident. A new family has moved in in the meantime and the younger son suspects her presence.

The novel is most effective with the creepy atmosphere provided by the testimony of individuals about wall-dwellers. The fact that in our very own homes there could be people lurking in the walls is genuinely creepy.

This novel...just didn't work for me, however. Elsie wasn't believable and the more the book explained her the less I cared about the outcome. ( )

I didn't know what to expect of this novel before I started it - it sounded like a suspense novel but it was so much more than that. It's the story about a young girl consumed with grief and trying to find her way in the world. Elsie is a well written character in a tense situation. Sometimes she seemed like the young girl that she was and other times she had very grown up thoughts. She was a character that was written so well that the reader really cared about her outcome.

Elise is an 11 year old girl. Her parents were killed in an auto accident and she knows that the only place she can feel safe is in the house where she grew up. The problem is that another family lives there now - parents, teen age son and younger son. She decides that she will live there too and makes her home in the walls and the basement and the attic of the home. When the family is gone during the day, she is able to go into the rooms and be free. When they are at home, she lives vicariously through their conversations and their lives. Both of the boys begin to feel her presence in the house -- they aren't sure what is there but they know that something is living in the walls. In their attempt to find whatever or whoever is there, they elicit the help of a man who becomes a threat to them and their home. There is a lot of tension throughout the novel but after the stranger is brought in, the tension builds as he is determined to find who or what is living there.

The only negative in this book is that it starts out pretty slow and you may be tempted not to continue reading but trust me, once the action picks up and the tension ratchets up, you'll be glad that you kept reading.

This is a well written book that is part suspense, part grief and park coming of age. The book kept me turning pages to find out what happened to Elise and how the family reacted to her. This is a debut novel for this author and I look forward to what he writes in the future.

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book to read and review. All opinions are my own. ( )

This is a book that I thoroughly enjoyed. To say that it was “strange” and “disquieting” would be an understatement...but yet the author of this debut novels has done a brilliant job of creating plausible and unforgettable characters. The story follows eleven-year-old orphan Elise, as she hides within the walls of her former family home... watching the house’s new residents, the Masons, as they carry on with their lives. I know that this sounds creepy...Elise is anything but. She’s intelligent... resourceful... perceptive and kind. Your heart will ache for her as you follow her story and watched her try to deal with the loss of her parents. A perfect read if you are fan of gothic fiction or if you are just looking for something a little different. ( )
