There's Someone Inside Your House
Over a year after her parents sent her away from Hawaii to live with her grandmother in landlocked Nebraska, Makani Young is still adjusting to her new life. She's made a small group of close friends and even flirted with romance, but her past in Hawaii is still hard to forget.
And then . . . one by one the students of her new high school begin to die in a series of gruesome murders. Makani doesn't know who's next on the list. Between this, and a secret scorching relationship with the school weirdo, this school year may turn out to be one to die for . . . literally.

I give it - 4/5
My review - Well, this book kept me on my toes and had me checking all doors where locked before I went to bed.
I love horror stories like this. Definitely for fans of Scream Queens. It had the right amount of horror, angst, love, friendship, just everything you need in a book where teenagers are getting murdered.
In this book we meet Makani. She currently lives with her grandmother after her parents sent her away from Hawaii to look after her. She has a few friends here and there and a little crush on someone but, that's just teenage life when you're in high school right? OH, there is also somebody going around killing students.
Which would freak anyone out.
Students are getting picked off one by one. No one knows why it's happening or who it is. After the first victim everyone thinks it might have just been random but, after the second and third people are getting worried. School is getting closed and everyone is making sure they are safe. But, you never know who the killer is after. Makani is scared, after a few of the killings she starts to question everyone. But, the only good thing in her life at the moment is Ollie, the guy she has a crush on. Her friends are worried about her getting close to him during this time but, there is no way he could be killing people right? And, if it's not him, who is it and who will be his next target?
I love the characters in this book. The problem with horror books is that sometimes you get attached to characters but you some times know that they're probably next to get killed. Always happens.
I really liked how we got parts from some of the murder victims in this book. Sounds weird to write but, I really enjoyed those parts put into the story. It really gave you more insight to each victim and what was happening to them. I loved reading about Makani, her friends and family. Her grandmother was wonderful.
A must read for all the Halloween fans out there. I didn't think I was going to be as gripped as I was.
Remember to lock your windows and doors afterwards though.
