Review: The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich

The Dead HouseThe Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
Publisher: Little Brown Books for Young Readers
Release Date: September 15th, 2015
Purchase: Amazon
Debut author Dawn Kurtagich is dead on in this terrifying psychological thriller!

Over two decades have passed since the fire at Elmbridge High, an inferno that took the lives of three teenagers. Not much was known about the events leading up to the tragedy - only that one student, Carly Johnson, vanished without a trace...

...until a diary is found hidden in the ruins.

But the diary, badly scorched, does not belong to Carly Johnson. It belongs to Kaitlyn Johnson, a girl who shouldn't exist Who was Kaitlyn? Why did she come out only at night? What is her connection to Carly?

The case has been reopened. Police records are being reexamined: psychiatric reports, video footage, text messages, e-mails. And the diary.

The diary that paints a much more sinister version of events than was ever made publicly known.
My thoughts:
I love love love this type of book. The whole journal entry, police transcripts, and camera details really put a creepy spin on an already creeptastic book.
