Here’s an autumnal book for you! Rooms by Lauren Oliver is a different take on the classic haunted house story. The house in question is haunted by two women whose spirits have essentially merged with the house and can observe–even experience, in a sense–everything that happens inside. When Richard Walker, who owns the house, dies, his estranged, extremely dysfunctional family returns to clean up the place. There is a suicidal teen, his sex-addicted sister, and their alcoholic mom. Essentially, this is a family drama with ghosts–not scary, more sad.
