From the moment I started reading House of Seven Days, my mind was asking, What? A teen who stayed on to care for the house when her mother left? Pond does not want to be there, but she has to for Aunt True. Chimney sweep who plants himself and does not leave? A guy with a dog who says he lives upstairs? A lady with an elephant? And what is the deal with all the codicils to the scavenger hunt? Ellis kept me turning pages and I was held in suspense until the last word. Well done!!!
House of Seven Days is full of twists and turns, characters drawn from real life, and whimsical moments of fantasy. Just when I thought I had things figured out, the book took me down another path. I loved it!
Great book and suitable for adults as well as teens. Clearly “fiction” but with lots of lessons for real life.
