A GOODREADS CHOICE AWARDS FINALIST

Monsters both figurative and very literal stalk the Turner family. The youngest child, Noah, narrates the family history: how in the late 60s, his bookish mother, Margaret, marries Lovecraft-lover Harry against her better judgment. The couple has two daughters--Sydney, born for the spotlight, and the brilliant but awkward Eunice, a natural writer and storyteller. But finances are tight, Margaret and Eunice are haunted by horrific dreams, and Harry starts acting strangely. He becomes obsessed with the construction of an elaborately crafted haunted house attraction, christened the Wandering Dark. The family tries to shield baby Noah from the houses faux horrors, but unbeknownst to them, hes being visited by a furry beast with glowing orange eyes--the same ghastly being glimpsed by both his mother and sister. However, unlike them, Noah decides to let the creature in. . . .

As he approaches the conclusion of his familys tale, it becomes more and more apparent that theres only one way the story can end: with Noah making the ultimate sacrifice.
