White Smoke by Tiffany D. Jackson
The Haunting of Hill House meets Get Out in this chilling YA psychological thriller from New York Times bestselling author Tiffany D. Jackson about a teenage girl moving with her newly blended family to a picture-perfect home . . . that is hiding secrets.
When the Sterling Foundation offers Marigold’s mom free housing for a year, her newly blended family moves to the embattled city of Cedarville, along with Mari’s bratty stepsister, Piper. Mari wants to be back in sunny California, not this oddly renovated home in a decaying town—but it’s not like the house wants her there, either.
It starts off slow. The perma-locked basement. Doors opening and closing when no one’s there. Mari’s stuff getting moved around her room. Piper makes a new friend, Ms. Suga, except no one else has seen her. But ghosts aren’t real, right? Mari and her brother, Sammy, set up cameras to investigate.
The house doesn’t like that.
