Dream house…or bad dream?

When the Kings move from LA 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. He, David, and Toria are, however, captivated by the many rooms in the old Victorian fixer-upper they moved into—as well as by the heavy woods that surround it.

They soon discover there’s something odd about the house. Sounds come from the wrong direction. Prints of giant, bare feet appear in the dust. And when David tries to hide in the linen closet, he winds up in locker one-nineteen at his new school.

Then the really weird stuff kicks in. They find a hidden hallway with portals leading 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.

    " A young adult book, for maybe 10-15 years old. Some violence no sex/romance. It was a treat i was intrigued in the mystery of this house they moved into, hidden in the woods. It's secrets thrilling and sometimes scary. I can see this becoming a very popular series. "

    " I am not sure what I thought this book would be, but it turned out a little scary. I am not someone who really likes scary, I tend to imagine the scary things from a book or movie happening to me in real life so I usually stay clear. It got scary towards the end and I was already engrossed in the story, which was really good. So now I have to read all six books...darn. I mean yay for finding a good series, darn for being scared....eek! "

    " Interesting beginning to a story of a house where rooms are not what they seem. Creepy without being horrific. Good horror novel for YA. "
