Cause: Memories are suppressed so the girl can survive.

Effect: A girl grows a granite heart.


I can’t believe I finished reading it without any symptoms of heart attack. The story was just so very creepy and mind-blowing.

Two sisters escaped from their father after they beaten without any reason. They escape and went to their Aunt Cathy at La Baume mansion.

Prisilla Daniels or Silla was the elder sister and she really loves her younger sister Eleanor or Nori for short. They taught they would end up happy and safe with her aunt.

But as her aunt told about The Creeper Man, the crazy things has been started.

Their aunt went crazy, the roots were closer and a mysterious guy keeps coming at the mansion.

Well, I wouldn’t tell all the details in the story because you need to see for yourself because it was incredibly beautiful in a scary way.

The effect of this story for me was really a headache, not bad but a good headache. It was not only a goosebumps-worthy, but the twists and turns were really intriguing.

If the characters were real, they will be really good actors and actresses. I was watching not in the 3D cinema, but in an actual on-stage play.

Silla, her grief, range anger and hopelessness – I really felt it.

There was really a moment that I want to shout her that she needs to forgive herself. But, as usual, I need to wait for the ending part.

And I was really shocked at myself that all the missing pieces in the first half have been united in the last few chapters. And I was like...


And the last few chapter, it was so... (view spoiler)

This story, it not only gives a mind blowing experiences but also a lesson that may apply to all of us.

5/5 star goosebumps for this book!
