Synopsis from Goodreads: When you enter the house, you follow the rules, you play the game…
“My name is Emily. I thought it was a regular abandoned house. I thought she was a regular girl. I thought we’d play a normal game of hide and seek. Turns out I was wrong. Dead wrong.”
I found this novel in the horror section of Wattpad and decided that I’d give it a read as I’m always looking for interesting horror novels/stories. I wasn’t disappointed at all.
While the writing seemed a bit juvenile at times, I was able to chalk that up to the fact that the story is being told from the perspective of a fourteen year old girl. That makes it a lot easier to see why the writing would seem to be juvenile at times – the narrator is juvenile herself.
I was impressed by this novel because it was a quick read and kept my interest. I wanted to know what was going on. I wanted to know what was happening next. That’s a rarity for me with stories on Wattpad. Most of the stories I find on Wattpad are either fan fiction stories of some sort or are so poorly written that I can’t even consider finishing them.
There were a few “spooky” gifs thrown in among the pages, but they weren’t randomly placed, they were meant to be illustrations for the story. But all in all it was a very good story and I can’t wait to find the sequels on Wattpad and read them as well.
