Description

Fifteen-year-old Gemma's life on a small New Brunswick island with her father, Jonah, is not an exciting one. Her mother ran off when she was an infant, and Jonah, an amateur scientist, spends most of his time conducting experiments he thinks will one day bring him fame. But when a woman arrives on the island, Gemma tries to play matchmaker - only to discover Jonah's hidden journals, which hold terrifying secrets about both their lives.

Mystery, science, and dreams of a better life collide in this page-turning young adult novel from Barbara Radecki.

Reviews

"The well-paced narrative builds from Gemma's quiet longing to her bold quest for the truth to a shocking conclusion readers won't see coming. Science, mystery, and family collide in this creepy, satisfying page-turner." Starred review

"Radecki throws in gasp-worthy twists and takes the plot far beyond the boundaries of expectation - about 100 gripping pages past where most novels would end. It's a smarter and more sinister The Face on the Milk Carton for this generation."

"All the elements are in place for a winning YA psychological thriller, and for the most part, The Darkhouse succeeds. The novel is well paced, with a narrative just twisty enough to keep even seasoned readers guessing."
