Publisher's Summary

There is no way out.
The house takes them, flies in the web, and won't let them go.
The house is beautiful and silent as a tomb.
There are children at play, pretending to live as their souls are sucked out of them.
There is no way out. The doors are locked and the windows hammered shut.
Some have been there for years, their minds warped into insanity by the fear and pain. Curt is new and can't understand why no one speaks and why the only sounds come from the night. He wonders what it is that comes out of the basement when the sun goes down.
There is no way out until you are cold and stiff.

Bleeping Wow!!

Too real scary! Fear, frustration, failure! No ultramacho hero to save the day, no easy out, no aw come on B.S. last minute saves. Real courage is terror overcome, but it has a price.
Only a very few people really know if they could risk damage and even death to save themselves or someone they love, and that's because they lived it. Each new threat is an uncertainty to how u will act. We like to imagine we would be a hero when we r young, but really we're scared kids projecting toughness, because weakness invites attack in those places, especially those places where evil is the system, from top to bottom.

a truly terrorizing story

the story was awesome and I loved the intelligence of Kurt, being a 12 year old boy, he was brave!! the narrator was on an ok level but wasn't free flowing was more like reading very slowly. but this would make an excellent scary movie
