There's Someone Inside Your House

Gr 9 Up—Makani Young has lots of secrets, and has left her home in Hawaii to live with her grandmother in a small town in Nebraska and start a new life. Makani finds good friends and falls for loner Ollie. But when her high school classmates start being brutally murdered one by one, she realizes that she may be a target and that Nebraska is not the safe haven she had hoped it would be. In this teen slasher departure from her usual YA romances (e.g., Anna and the French Kiss), Perkins mixes in enough contemporary teen drama, offbeat characters, and everyday life details to break up the tension caused by the serial murders. Bahni Turpin narrates and does a nice job putting a unique spin on each character. Listeners are drawn in as the suspense builds and the teens' fears intensify in this fast-paced audiobook. Squeamish listeners may cringe as the body count and gore factor rises towards the end.
VERDICT Give this to your fans of teen horror or the Scream franchise.— ;Julie Paladino, formerly of East Chapel Hill High School, Chapel Hill, NC
