The Humming Room
I loved this book. It is a fantastic retelling for fans of the story (and for fans of the movie who aren't strong enough readers to tackle the original). I loved all the characters and found myself really rooting for Roo. The house is a character in itself with twists and turns that come to life. The book is fantastic, it kept me interested and I sped through it excited to find out what would happen next.
Appropriateness: This is a great middle grade book that kids will love. Roo comes from an abusive home where both of her parents are addicts. I would recommend this book to readers 9-14.
