House of Goths - Not Your Average Fraternity House
Becky Sparks is a sweet, average girl who refuses to spend her college years in a lonely, soul destroying dorm, surrounded by people who don't care enough to ask her name. Bassist Kelley Keele is a Goth with a dark past. He resides at what he and his equally eccentric bandmates, Crispin, and Dorian, like to refer to as the House of Goths.
On the first day of class, these two polar opposites literally crash into each other. Mesmerized by his overwhelming persona, Becky forms an instant bond with the scary Goth with red streaks in his hair. So much so that when she spies him putting up an ad for a fourth housemate, Becky jumps at the chance to move in, away from her dreary life at the unfriendly dorm. The problem is, well, she's a girl and a mundane one at that.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I really enjoyed this, the story, the characters, the setting. It made me feel what the characters were experiencing, and gave me plenty of smiles, even amongst the angst that came naturally to the story. Maria's style makes this a comfortable read that you can curl up with and enjoy. This was one of those books where I'd always read one or more chapters than I'd intended, even when it meant being able to get less sleep.
