Synopses & Reviews
This is the first book in Robert Liparulo's critically acclaimed, wildly popular Young Adult series, The Dreamhouse Kings.
Dream house . . . or bad dream?
When the Kings move from L.A. to a secluded small town, fifteen-year-old Xander is beyond disappointed. He and his friends loved to create amateur films . . . but the tiny town of Pinedale is the last place a movie buff and future filmmaker wants to land.
He, David, and Toria are, however, captivated by the many rooms in the old Victorian fixer-upper they moved into -- as well as by the heavy woods that surround it.
They soon discover there's something odd about the house. Sounds come from the wrong direction. Prints of giant, bare feet appear in the dust. And when David tries to hide in the linen closet, he winds up in locker one-nineteen at his new school.
Then the really weird stuff kicks in. They find a hidden hallway with portals leading to far-off places -- in long-ago times. Xander is starting to wonder if this kind of travel is a teen's dream come true . . . or his worst nightmare.
