Product description

Review

Mesmerizing and beautifully crafted, The Inside-Out House is an evocative story about family ghosts and secrets, and the truths we keep locked inside ourselves. Fantastic imagery and utterly believable characters combine into a page turning debut. --Shanta Everington - Author: Marilyn and Me

A house like no other, with a mystery to tell. A teenager searching for her identity and looking for answers in her life. Both are drawn together in Joanna Ezekiel s engrossing story set in the 1990s and inspired by the sculptor Rachel Whiteread s intriguing concrete cast of a Victorian house. The book explores many difficult life issues with a deft touch; growing up, moving on, teenage relationships, adults rules and racism. The key character Sam is a feisty but sensitive teenage girl, with the guts to stand up against bullies but unsure of her growing relationship with Jimi, who shares her fascination with the House. There are some colourful yet believable female characters, for example, Wendy the librarian, with her violet Mini car with its Prince and the Purple Revolution banner and the deeply political Aunty Roo. The novel moves towards a powerful conclusion, in a finely written dramatic scene that reflects the writer s poetic ability to depict the layers behind the event. This is novel that is something different, beginning with two young people s shared fascination with an inside-out house art work. This read will appeal to deep-thinking teenagers who don t want to be stereotyped and put into boxes. --Anne Krisman

A poignant coming-of-age novel, moving and beautifully told. --Helen Cadbury - Author: To Catch a Rabbit
