Why read it?

1 author picked The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

When I read this book, I was thrown sideways and bowled over. It is just so unique! The creep factor is ridiculously high, and it goes places that are totally unexpected and unheard of in a middle-grade novel. This is not your standard spooky tale, but rather one that will eat into your soul and give you series willies.

From David's list on spooky middle grade books.
