Dream house . . . or bad dream?
When the Kings move from L.A. to a secluded small town, fifteen-year-old Xander is beyond disappointed. He and his friends loved to create amateur films . . . but the tiny town of Pinedale is the last place a movie buff and future filmmaker wants to land.
But he, David, and Toria are captivated by the many rooms in the old Victorian fixer-upper they moved into--as well as the heavy woods surrounding the house.
They soon discover there's something odd about the house. Sounds come from the wrong directions. Prints of giant, bare feet appear in the dust. And when David tries to hide in the linen closet, he winds up in locker 119 at his new school.
Then the really weird stuff kicks in: they find a hidden hallway with portals leading off to far-off places--in long-ago times. Xander is starting to wonder if this kind of travel is a teen's dream come true . . . or his worst nightmare.

1 . Fun concept!
Posted January 08, 2011 by Rebecca S. , MinneapolisI would recommend this to my nephews who are just slightly younger than the suggested age-range for this story, but I personally was disappointed with some of the character motivation here. My nephews might not wonder why a person would bring their entire family to live in a home where they have personal experience with bad and unexplainable things happening and no reason to believe that they wouldn't happen again. Then again, I might be underestimating the boys and they might wonder the same thing!
