This is a story about a young girl called Pru who has been diagnosed with a life changing illness that causes her to rethink life and be bold.
This bold move takes her to 17 Marigold Lane, the house everyone calls the spooky house. The rumours around the town is that vampires live there and coffins were in the living room.
However as Pru found out the reality was different from the truth. Instead of coffins Pru found a young man living there called Cassius.
Cassius is a strange boy with strange habits but everything isnt what it seems with Cassius and his family. Pru starts to build a friendship with Cassius and begins to unravel a mystery that has been around for 14 years.
This book is an amazing read with lots of twists, but what i like about it is it takes two topics (Cancer in a young person and Aspergers Syndrome) and portrays them in a respectful and informative way. Showing that just because people may seem different we are all human and deserved to be treated right not bullied or discriminated against
