Gnarled Hallow by Charlotte Green is a classic haunted house story. O’Brien said fans Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House will especially enjoy this book. She warns people to consider reading this book with a light on or in the middle of the day depending on how brave they are.

Small Spaces
