$.99 sale in honor of summer's arrival!
When Michael O'Brien and his father, James, buy a new car just in time for the family's summer vacation, James signs over more than the title to his old AMC Gremlin in his rush to buy the brand new Inferno station wagon.
Joining them on the trip are Michael's creepy younger siblings, Elvis and Olivia; his overbearing mother, Mary, and her pet Chihuahua, Lucky; his backwoods aunt, Margie; and the cremated remains of his grandmother, June, whose dying wish was to have her ashes scattered in the Grand Canyon.
Can the O'Briens pull together to defeat the possessed station wagon, or will the forces of evil destroy the family in the process? Find out in this humorous coming-of-age story.
Praise for Hell Comes with Wood Paneled Doors
“Gronlund's Hell packs plenty beneath the hood. I loved traveling with Michael and his not quite normal (see: all-American) family. It's an endearing shaggy-dog adventure that had me rooting for a little familial love, and hoping they got the devil out of that car, by the time they reached the Grand Canyon with Grandma's ashes. Gronlund transports us so well into the great tradition of the American roadtrip that I'll offer a warning: if you, like me, have memories of being wedged between siblings and panting dogs for hours on end, you may find yourself in tears by the end of it, both by nostalgia and the sweet relief that you're now too big to be crammed into that backseat ever again”
— Mark Hosack, author of the business thriller Identity; screenwriter of Give ‘Em Hell Malone
“Barring androids and certain born-as-adults aliens, I think pretty much everyone can find something to love in this hilarious, well-drawn coming-of-age story.”
— Shawn Kupfer, author of the 47 Echo series
