Review: There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins

There's Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins

There’s Someone Inside Your House in a YA horror novel. I don’t usually do horror, but this book was compared to the movie Scream, so I thought I could handle it. It’s really addictive, and definitely not too scary. I’d say it’s more suspenseful, while quite gory, but I really, really enjoyed it.

The book centers around Makani, who’s new to the town and high school. Her parents shipped her from Hawaii to Nebraska, so they could deal with their divorce without her getting in the way. In short, her parents really suck, but thankfully her grandmother is awesome, despite her sleep-walking habit. Makani falls for Ollie, an outcast at school who’s recently dyed his hair pink. As their relationship develops, so does a series of gruesome murders of their classmates. Many people suspect Ollie, but Makani knows him better than anyone. And of course, they stupidly get involved in the investigation.

I flew through this book in a weekend, and it definitely had me feeling many feels. It’s almost like I could see it playing out as a movie while I was reading the book. I highly recommended it.
