There's Someone Inside Your House
By Stephanie Perkins

Review: There’s Someone Inside Your House

Stephanie Perkins’ THERE’S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE has been a highly anticipated novel since its announcement. As an avid Perkins fan myself, I was so excited to read her version of a teen slasher story. While the narrative moved quickly and packed plenty of gore, it lacked the big chills for which I’d hoped. Bloody mayhem is the constant factor in this short, high-speed narrative about a group of high-schoolers who find themselves the target of an unlikely killer.

We meet Makani Young, who moved from Hawaii to small-town Nebraska for her final year in school. There, she finds herself a group of friends she cares about even though she feels like she doesn’t quite fit in. Makani is haunted by a shameful secret from her past, living with the fear that one day everyone will know what happened. Despite her fears, her crush for pink-haired loner Ollie Larsson develops, as they connect on feeling like outsiders.

When word of the first grisly murder spreads, everyone believes it to be a one-off with motive specific to the victim. But when another classmate is found dead, then a third is discovered, it’s clear any one of them could be next.

The murders are many, graphic, gruesome and specific, hinting at the killer’s grand plans, but even that reveal felt rushed and lacked the payoff I wanted to feel. Nonetheless, the book can easily be a fun, fast read to spark your Halloween spirit.

In romances, if your characters are infertile, they don't need miracle pregnancy to have a happy ending. Nor does your plus size heroine need to lose a weight, your disabled character be "cured" or your plain character become hot.

Let your characters find happiness as they are.

Some people ask: Why would you impeach and convict a president who has only a few days left in office? The answer: Precedent. It must be made clear that no president, now or in the future, can lead an insurrection against the U.S. government.
