“I first came to live with Grandmother about a year ago, after I killed my parents...”

When fourteen-year-old Elizabeth looks into her mirror she doesn‘t see herself, she sees the image of long-dead Frances.

(I‘m kind of excited to read this recently republished, 1976 horror classic. 😆😆)

The Fifth Child | Doris Lessing
post image

More than once she woke to see Ben standing silently in the half dark, staring at them. The shadows from the garden moved on the ceiling, the spaces of the big room emptied into obscurity, & there stood this goblin child, half visible.

Go to sleep Ben, she would say, keeping her voice level because of the sharp fear she felt. What was he thinking as he watched them sleep? Did he want to hurt them?

Fifteen-year-old Ryan Kettering has endured a series of abusive foster homes. He thinks his luck has changed when he moves in with the Prestons. There are five other foster kids in the house: a ready-made family. But then there‘s nine-year-old Maddy who stays in the basement. Maddy speaks in a strange, adult voice. And, for some reason, the government seems interested in her. Maybe Ryan‘s luck hasn't changed after all. #SinisterKid #OctoberXFiles

Robothugs 👀 This sounds pretty intriguing! Have you read it & if so did you like it? 1y
MirrorMask I avoid sinister kid books. Just being honest. LOL 1y

#OctoberXFiles Day 24: Makings of #SinisterKid with this sinister alphabet book. While anxieties and fears are no laughing matter, Roz Chast has managed to exorcise some of her demons by putting them down on paper here to share her despair, twisting them into something witty despite its undercurrent of truth. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-awj

Reviewsbylola Hahaha this looks cool! 1y
