Some houses are more than just haunted... they're hungry.
Dash, Dylan, Poppy, Marcus, and Azumi don't know this at first. They each think they've been summoned to Shadow House for innocent reasons. But there's nothing innocent about Shadow House.
Something within its walls is wickedly wrong. Nothing -- and nobody -- can be trusted. Hallways move. Doors vanish. Ghosts appear. Children disappear.
And the way out?
That's disappeared, too...
Enter Shadow House... if you dare.

Poppy was very unhappy at Thursday’s Home, a home for girls. She had only one friend, a girl that appeared behind her each time she looked into a mirror. Once, she snuck into the office of Thursday’s Home to see if she could discover where she had come from. She was very surprised when she found a letter in her file, written by her aunt, asking her to come live with her at Larkspur. All she ever wanted was a family, so leaves, eager to meet her aunt. As she makes her way there, she meets Marcus, Azumi, Dylan and Dash, all children summoned to Larkspur, but for different reasons. When they arrive at Larkspur, things are not at all what they expected. They are in a haunted house! Children who like scary stories, should like this haunted house mystery. There are lots of creepy things going on there! The characters are likeable and many children may be able to relate to Polly, a girl who is made fun of by the other children. The scenes are pretty frightening for children. The app that comes along with this book is from Scholastic books. It is very good, because it involves reading. In order to get through the mansion, a child must do lots of reading. Obviously, this is a great motivator to read. I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
