Some houses are more than just haunted... they're hungry. Dash, Dylan, Poppy, Marcus, and Azumi don't know this at first. They each think they've been summoned to Shadow House for innocent reasons. But there's nothing innocent about Shadow House. Something within its walls is wickedly wrong. Nothing -- and nobody -- can be trusted. Hallways move. Doors vanish. Ghosts appear. Children disappear. And the way out? That's disappeared, too... Enter Shadow House... if you dare. Don't just read about Shadow House -- explore its haunted depths with the free app!show more

Review quote

Praise for The Book of Bad Things "Ghostly... grotesque... eerie..." -- Booklist "Poblocki's return, full of mystery, monsters and ghosts, is sure to satisfy his fans. Old-school, John Saul-style horror." -- Kirkus Reviews "Fun and creepy in all the good ways." -- VOYA Praise for The Haunting of Gabriel Ashe A YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults selection A Junior Library Guild selection "The social dramas mesh well with the supernatural elements... Poblocki creates a real sense of suspense." -- Booklist "Poblocki creates danger by not pulling punches. An atmospheric, creepy ghost story best read at night." -- Kirkus Reviews Praise for The Ghost of Graylock A YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults selection A Junior Library Guild selection "Poblocki misses nary a horror-story trope as he propels his cast through one terrifying incident after another to, at last, a climactic flight. Definitely a story to be read by flashlight." -- Booklist "Poblocki is in his element with eerie happenings and atmospheric settings. Short chapters with cliff-hanger endings and several twists and turns in the plot will ensure that the pages turn quickly. Give this book to Mary Downing Hahn fans and others who enjoy spine-tingling mysteries." -- School Library Journalshow more
