Your past and your family can haunt you like nothing else… A hilarious and terrifying new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Final Girl Support Group.

Every childhood home is haunted, and each of us are possessed by our parents.

When their parents die at the tail end of the coronavirus pandemic, Louise and Mark Joyner are devastated but nothing can prepare them for how bad things are about to get. The two siblings are almost totally estranged, and couldn’t be more different. Now, however, they don’t have a choice but to get along. The virus has passed, and both of them are facing bank accounts ravaged by the economic meltdown. Their one asset? Their childhood home. They need to get it on the market as soon as possible because they need the money. Yet before her parents died they taped newspaper over the mirrors and nailed shut the attic door.

Sometimes we feel like puppets, controlled by our upbringing and our genes. Sometimes we feel like our parents treat us like toys, or playthings, or even dolls. The past can ground us, teach us, and keep us safe. It can also trap us, and bind us, and suffocate the life out of us. As disturbing events stack up in the house, Louise and Mark have to learn that sometimes the only way to break away from the past, sometimes the only way to sell a haunted house, is to burn it all down. - from Goodreads



  1. This year I've read 3 Grady Hendrix books so I'm really excited to get my hands on his newest one in January. Starting 2023 good! :D

  2. I've never read anything by this author, but this one sounds funny and a bit terrifying. If that's the case, then it must be a winner:)).

  3. Oh this sounds intriguing! I haven't read any Grady Hendrix yet, but I already have some books on my TBR, and now this one too :)

  4. Interesting that it's described as both terrifying and hilarious. Hmmm. lol

  5. This one intrigues me, especially since it's described as both hilarious and terrifying. I'm waiting to see some reviews for it before I commit to adding to my TBR just because I'm a big chicken, but I'm definitely interested.

    1. Haha! His books can definitely be a bit gory, but always a little tongue-in-cheek fun.


I'm so glad you stopped by, and I would love to hear your thoughts! Comments are always greatly appreciated!
