    " This was a fun "spooky" book to read in October! The characters were engaging and I really liked the conclusion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 12/21/2013

    " This book received the Edgar Award and rightly so. It is about a 17 year old boy who is acquitted of killing his girlfriend. Because of all the publicity he is sent to live with his aunt and uncle. He stays in their attic apartment that once belonged to his cousin who committed suicide. At night he sees shadows that he believes is his cousins ghost. The ghost has a message for him, "Help Lily." A good read! "

    " Interesting premise, a little slow at first but the characters are well written. This is a story about David, a boy accused of and exhonerated for killing his girlfriend who moves to another town to live with his cousin's family in order to finish his senior year of high school. Just a few years earlier, his cousin Kathy had apparently committed suicide and her then 7 year old sister, Lilly, discovered her. This is the family David comes to live with, a family estranged from his own family and under various psychological stresses, not the least of which is Lilly's strange, angry behavior. The questions to solve in this story is David a "killer" being haunted by his dead cousin Kathy and did kathy actually commit suicide or is there something more sinister afoot. "

    " not to kill people "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gertrude | 11/24/2013

    " Good book.but a little boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 11/9/2013

    " pretty good, it actually comes BEFORE Locked Inside (it doesn't make to big a difference really, tho) but i didn't know that. i read them in the wrong order. oops! "

    " David Yaffe was acquitted. The law found him "not guilty" of killing his girlfriend. But can he ever stop thinking of himself as a killer? In The Killer's Cousin David is haunted by the memory of his crime and by his cousin Lily, who has some serious guilt of her own to work through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 9/24/2013

    " Quick read, but good! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camille | 9/4/2013

    " It was a good teen novel. I read it with my 11th graders. The beginning was slow for them because they read slowly, but by the middle, everyone liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget | 6/24/2013

    " I couldn't believe how scary or creepy an 11 year old girl antagonist could be. This book was a real thriller and I almost gave it a five. It really should be a 4.5. If you like thrills while reading - this book is for you! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 11/17/2012

    " A really interesting exploration of guilt and atonement that was undercut by some hokey X-Files shit -- though I'm sure X-Files fans will appreciate the Fox and Mulder mentions. Sidenote: Do you really call yourselves X-Philes?! By the way, X-Philes, who is Samantha and what happened to her? "

    " I have read this a bunch of times, but one of my classes is currently reading it and they are into it----love seeing kids excited about a book! And I like it, too! "

    " really good :) creeping to think about. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen Kirby Vallejo | 6/3/2011

    " Wasn't a huge fan... figured it out early on and then was just waiting for it to be over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzette Gee | 5/8/2011

    " Spookier than her others. She won a mystery award for this one. It's good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen Landon | 4/2/2011

    " Good little mystery--although nothing in it was a huge shoker. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Madeleine | 3/27/2011

    " Well-written, well-paced novel about a teenager acquitted of murder and forced to live with his aunt, uncle and creepy cousin Lily in Cambridge, Massachusetts. A bit predictable but good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dennis | 2/28/2011

    " finally got around to this one, after meaning to for years. very good story, excellent writing. very suspensful. excellent cd audio performance, once again, by Nick Podehl. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tia | 2/18/2011

    " I like the book because it has good suspence and mystery "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 2/12/2011

    " Great audio book, it is read by the same guy who did Carter Finally Gets It. It was a little confusing with all the girl characters at first it is a little confusing but resolves it self well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 1/27/2011

    " Started this and thought it would be a "bad seed" story. I was pleasantly surprised to find it be much more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katyh | 1/1/2011

    " This isn't that old but seemed pretty dated with usenet and X-Files references. Really good depiction of parent/child and husband/wife relationships, but supernatural element unnecessary and poorly done. Didn't buy that one bit. "

    " very good mystery and you never know what will happen next. the people in this book go through a lot so it is very interesting

    " This was a huge disappointment from Nancy Werlin. I'm a big fan of Double Helix, and this book just couldn't compare. I was also severely let down by a certain turn in the story that I thought was extremely boring- albeit possibly more realistic. "
