about

Eleven-year-old Quinn has had some bad experiences lately. She was caught cheating in school, and then one day, her little sister Emma disappeared while walking home from school. She never returned.

When Quinn's best friend Kara has to move away, she goes on one last trip with Kara and her family. They stop over at the first hotel they see, a Victorian inn that instantly gives Quinn the creeps, and she begins to notice strange things happening around them. When Kara's parents and then brother disappear without a trace, the girls are stranded in a hotel full of strange guests, hallways that twist back in on themselves, and a particularly nasty surprise lurking beneath the floorboards. Will the girls be able to solve the mystery of what happened to Kara's family before it's too late?

Marina Cohen grew up in Scarborough, Ontario, where she spent far too much time asking herself what if... In elementary school, her favorite author was Edgar Allen Poe. She loved "The Tell-Tale Heart" and aspired to write similar stories. She is a love of the fantastical, the bizarre, and all things creepy.

Editorial Reviews

"Cohen's emotionally gripping tale perfectly captures the essences of friendship and sibling love. Readers looking for a mystery with heart, humor, and hairy moments will be captivated."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review"The well-placed narrative balances emotion and plot, and the strong underlying mysteries offer up plenty of clues for attentive readers to piece together. Quinn is a likable, authentically muddled young character, and occasional flashbacks to events surrounding her sister's loss flesh out her guilt-ridden motivations without overtaking the story. Ultimately offering a happy resolution, this middle-grade supernatural story functions well as horror for beginners and a clever concept for fans of imaginative fiction. "-Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"For readers who enjoy being scared silly, this will fit the bill while also providing them with a thought-provoking ending."-Booklist
