I have never been into graphic novels, not that I'm against them, they just haven't been my thing. But this cover is gorgeous and I was intrigued by the synopsis. I had REALLY hoped that it would have been a BIT more scary. This book focuses on a young girl, Denise, who moves back to New Orleans years after the big hurricane. She lost her father and her grandfather in "the Storm". Her mother and her step dad throw all of their money into an old house with hopes of sprucing it up and opening up a bed and breakfast. Besides the house being a "crap hole", Denise is not too excited about being away from her friends for her Senior year. She is also less than thrilled when weird things start happening around the house. Her and a neighbor kid find a comic wrapped in plastic up in the attic. They start to read it, and throughout the book, whenever something happens in the comic the same thing happens in real life. Windows slam shut on hands, nails trip people up the stairs, porches cave in. It's like the house, or someone, doesn't want them there. Things progress as Denise uncovers secrets about the house, the past owner, and the mysterious comic. Not all things are as they seem. And one night, things come to a scary confrontation. This story is cute, and has a good sense of mystery to it. It's the typical, good ghost bad ghost situation and it all ends happily. I did feel like there were some parts of the book that were pushed or stressed a little too much. They brought up the fact about white people coming in and buying houses and trying to "white up" the neighborhoods. It was mentioned several times and really didn't have ANYTHING to do with the story. Nothing at all. Again, I would have liked the story to be a BIT more scary. All the really good ghost stuff happened in like the last 3 chapters. It was a cute little ghost story though! The writing was great!

    This hybrid novel/graphic novel explores the story behind a haunted house in a gentrifying area of New Orleans.

When Denise, her mother, and stepfather, return to New Orleans to fix up an old home years after the storm, they're met with suspicion in the neighborhood. They're white, and the neighborhood is primarily black. There's smart discussion of gentrification and the issues surrounding it, without feeling like a lecture or like Denise and her family weren't welcome (there's a particularly poignant part about employing the neighbors to help with fixing the home and then, when it turns into a BnB, employing them with fair wages). But the ghost story is the key here! Denise and her new friend discover a comic in the spooky attic and -- surprise! -- the comic is the key to understanding the weird, ghostlike experiences they're having in the home. There's a neat look at comic culture and how, during the era of CCA, women and people of color weren't allowed to play real roles in the stories. Fun horror, perfect for younger YA readers (& no problem for middle grade readers, either). This is a book without romance for any readers seeking that out.

    I picked this for the Halloween display at the book store I work for. It's new, and will be a great addition for those who like YA titles. It's interesting, and the graphic portions of the story definitely enhance the written portions. There were a couple of bits that felt a tad bit...preachy...but they didn't take away from the overall story. My daughter is already asking to read it!

All opinions are my own. Releases 9/25/18 Denise and her family move back to New Orleans in hopes of changing their fortune by renovating an old house and turning it into a bed and breakfast. Old houses are a tricky business to handle but when it becomes undeniable that the house didn't want Denise and her family around, she decides to push back and keep her family safe by uncovering the house's dark past. My favorite kind of scary story is the kind that makes me jumpy, the kind that makes me wonder if what the character sees is real or an illusion, and the kind that makes me paranoid about anything remotely odd. Cherie Priest delivers all of that and more. The combination of prose and graphic novel panels adds a neat interactive level to the reading experience. Wondering about what unsettling details Denise will uncover in her search through the house's past makes this book a thrilling page turner and so hard to put down. Agony House is an excellent horror read that doesn't over do it. I highly recommend you read it in one sitting.

    3 1/2. I didn’t enjoy it as much as Princess X, but as a ghost story/mystery/haunted house story for middle school and high school it works.

    Denise Farber is about to start her senior year of high school and has just moved with her mom, Sally, and stepdad, Mike, from Houston back to New Orleans, where she was born. Denise and her mom left New Orleans when Denise was just a baby, after the destruction caused by “The Storm” (Hurricane Katrina) and the resulting deaths of Denise’s father and grandmother. Her mom and stepdad have bought an old rundown Victorian house that they intend to fix up and convert into a bed and breakfast, as had Denise Farber is about to start her senior year of high school and has just moved with her mom, Sally, and stepdad, Mike, from Houston back to New Orleans, where she was born. Denise and her mom left New Orleans when Denise was just a baby, after the destruction caused by “The Storm” (Hurricane Katrina) and the resulting deaths of Denise’s father and grandmother. Her mom and stepdad have bought an old rundown Victorian house that they intend to fix up and convert into a bed and breakfast, as had been Denise’s grandmother’s dream before she died. Denise isn’t sold on the idea of living in the dirty, weatherworn house, or being away from her friends in Houston, especially when she starts hearing mysterious humming, and footprints in the dust belonging to nobody. When the house starts trying to kill them, Denise needs to unravel the mystery of the identity of the ghosts living there, and how they’re related to a comic book she found in the attic, whose author died in the 1950’s inside the very house her family is trying to save. __________ I received a review copy of this book from my husband, who got it from a vendor giving away books at a convention. Okay, the ending took me by surprise! In mystery books like this, I always like to try to predict what the twist ending will be, and I will say I was totally blindsided. I might actually go back and re-read this one to see if I missed some big hints. I think I must’ve. For hardcore horror fans this might not be scary enough, but I’m spooked very easily and found the horror elements very effective. Denise’s first friend in New Orleans, Terry, is the exact type of person I’d want to accompany me in a haunted house. He’s persistent to the point of being annoying, very excited about ghosts, and great comic relief when things start getting spooky. He’s also loyal, and will always show up when you need him, which seems to be exactly what Denise needs in her new neighborhood. She also makes friends with Norman, who is always willing to help out with anything she or her family needs, and she makes a sort-of friend out of Dominique, Norman’s cousin, and easily my favorite character in the whole book. I would’ve loved to see more of her. The story really gets going when Denise and Terry discover the manuscript for a comic book hidden up in the attic while searching for ghosts, which happens pretty early on in the book. The comic is Lucida Might and the House of Horrors, a story about a fast-talking, fast-shooting detective who apparently spends most of her time rescuing her accident-prone boyfriend, Doug. The comic segments are fantastic, and the art really helps to set the mood for the story. The comic (in universe) was written by Joe Vaughn, who, according to his (in universe) Wikipedia article, gave up his comics career after the Comics Code Authority regulations in the 1950s restricted the types of things his female hero was allowed to do. I thought the Wikipedia article was a nice touch, and, as a former Wikipedia editor, got a real kick out of the description of the talk page arguments. It was a nice note of realism. I also really appreciated the frank discussion of gentrification. Denise is a white girl, from a white family, who moved to a predominantly poor, black neighborhood to fix up an old house and turn it into a bed and breakfast. Dominique in particular is very quick to brand Denise’s family as gentrifiers, but not necessarily without reason. Dominique, Norman, and their grandmother all give Denise a primer on what gentrification is, how it negatively affects the neighborhood, and how not to be a gentrifier, and I found it deeply thoughtful and effective. Okay, this is MUCH longer than I had originally planned. Maybe one day I will do a super spoilery analysis of this book because I feel like there’s a lot in those 270ish pages to talk about, but that’s for another time, and not for this review. I’ve already said too much. I’d give The Agony House 4 stars for not enough Dominique, but that seems petty, so it gets the 5. Crossing my fingers that we’ll see more ghost hunting adventures from the gang in the future. Cherie Priest also wrote I Am Princess X, which is definitely going on my to-read list.

It was incredibly apropos that I received a copy of this book at ALA in New Orleans because this is a book set in New Orleans, which is just one great thing about it. And the mystery and history of New Orleans definitely comes alive in The Agony House. It’s a city full of stories of ghosts and haunted houses. That seems to be the basis for this story and I really loved that. I love books that are set in mysterious old houses because I always wonder what happened in a place years ago. And seriously, this House was so creepy and fascinating. It definitely had this great horror movie vibe. It was compelling and cinematic made all the more interesting with the comics that were dispersed throughout. But the house was only the start when it came to establishing the setting of this book. It takes place in the present day so the book has to deal with Hurricane Katrina and the aftermath. I really liked why Cherie Priest did with this aspect of the story. She didn’t shy away from talking about some of the terrible things that happened to the city of New Orleans and the people who lived there. She also really addressed the idea of gentrification and people coming into a blighted neighborhood and wanting to make it better at the expense of the people who had been there for generations. It’s such an interesting concept and I loved that she talked about it here. It gave the book a lot of depth and also grounded it in reality. And that reality was shown in sharp contrast to the amazing supernatural elements in this book. I’m not a big fan of horror but I like a creepy book that makes me look over my shoulder and question things about old houses which is exactly what this book did. The ghost elements were really well done and had me really thinking that this house could certainly be a stop on a New Orleans ghost tour if it existed. And the ghost tour I went on was one of the highlights of my trip so that made me incredibly happy. The other thing about this book that made me very happy was the mystery. I really loved the way it all unfolded. Like I Am Princess X this one had a comic that was dispersed throughout the story which gave clues that lead to the big reveal at the end (and in this case also showed what run ins with the resident ghost would be like). But unlike Princess X, I felt like this mystery was a little less obvious. It still was solvable and there were hints but it felt like a more mysterious and complex narrative which I appreciated. It was also an incredibly addicting read. It’s a short book and therefore it’a not too surprising that I finished it in two days but I also could not put it down. I keep telling myself “just one more chapter” and before I knew it I had read another forty pages. It had that much of my attention. All in all, this was an amazing read. It is the perfect combination of supernatural thriller and historical mystery plus there is the comic thrown in for even more amazingness. I really loved and definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fast and compelling Halloween read.

    Agony house was an interesting haunted house story that combined a creepy setting with a long lost comic book. I found Agony House entertaining and I really liked the twist at the end, but I had a few things that just weren't for me on a more personal taste level. What I liked: I really liked the plot.

I enjoyed the action and the characters and I think that the twist at the ending was really interesting and unexpected (at least to me). I loved the comic book character and I loved the illustrations. I loved the main character. I found her real and compelling. Her sidekicks grew, too. The backstory was neat and well thought out. I loved the setting. For negatives: as a librarian reading a book that is about a kid interested in house history or a death that has happened at their house, the very first place I would think to go is the public library. I know I know, she's a kid, but still. I've had kids come into the library looking for articles and obits. It would have been a natural first step for her to go to the public library and find the obituary for that dead guy. Then look into the house history. Something similar happened, but not until page 196. It felt really weird to me that a kid would come up with so little information by page 196. The writing was good, but so practical. This is purely an aesthetic taste. I love evocative writing and I would have felt more of the spookies if the writing had been more evocative, or perhaps placed more deeply inside the character's head. I didn't get the feels. Finally, one of my main thoughts was why she didn't just read the comic book in one sitting. I mean, bad things happened when she read the comic book. That either would have spurred me to get rid of the thing, burn it, or read it all in one sitting to get through it. Neither of these things happened. The character almost rolled with the punches too easily. I felt like that decreased the tension a little bit. Still, I did like the book. I found it entertaining and interesting. A clever idea that will find readers interested in a quick read with an interesting twist.

I really liked how the characters weren't in denial about ghosts the whole time because that just takes away from the story so I'm happy that didn't happen. The cast of characters was interesting and I really liked the friendships the main, Denise, made with the neighborhood kids -especially with Dominique, who looked like they would be enemies in the beginning. Terry was funny and Norman was cool. No ships in this book (which is better for the story). The plot was mysterious. It doesn't quite snatch up your attention like I've experienced with some other AMAZING books, but it was fun to try and figure out what was happening. Likes/Dislikes: I said this before but again: I really liked how the characters weren't fully in denial of ghosts the whole time. I feel like the book was WAY better that way. Also liked how there was an actual comic book IN the story!! And how the color of the text would change to blue when the kids were texting or reading articles etc. I didn't like how it was told through third person narration; I feel like it could've been better off with going first person. Conclusion: I would rate this a high 3 out of 5 stars. I'd recommend it to anyone in the mood for a good quick & fast ghost story. Took me 3 days to read

And this book comes extremely close to delivering that feeling. Denise has moved to New Orleans with her mother and her stepfather, Mike. The family hasn't been living there since Katrina in which Denise lost her father and grandmother. Denise's mother, Sally, has decided to buy an old house and dreams of turning it into a bed and breakfast. But the house is in disgusting condition with almost no electricity, a wasp's nest in one of the bedrooms and just a layer of dirt, grime and possibly asbestos. Denise has trouble making friends and encounters the semi annoying Terry, a boy who is convinced that the home that Denise is trying to acclimate herself into may be haunted. Terry comes armed with ghost hunting equipment and uses Denise as a means to explore the house. But then strange stuff starts happening, scents appear; voices are heard over a recorder and a strange comic book is found in the attic. All of these things turn into a book that is about 75 percent realistic fiction, and 25 percent scary story, which in my opinion was just the right amount. The book delivers suspense while appropriate along with some beautifully done comic book style scenes as Denise and her new group of friends read the plot of the Lucida comic book found in the attic. The book had great side characters as well as a fun and typically cynical teenager who is just trying to make the best of her situation.

    This was really tough for me to get into. The first 15% of the book details the house renovations needed and, as I have already helped build a house from the ground up, I was not feeling it. But once it got into the ghostie bits and the mystery of Joe Vaughn, I was sold on it. The blue and black color scheme helped too!

    Whoa! I blown away again just like "Princess X" which I considering this book to be a "spiritual successor" of. It had very fast paced action and intrigue abound all tightly woven...I did not see that ending coming! The supernatural elements was so light and subtle that it makes the reader wonder was that real or not? Plus the amazing comic-text hybrid makes the narrative every immersive and an enjoyable ride!

    3.5 stars. The ending was worth the first half of the book. The mystery and spookiness ramped up big time. The rest of the time I felt this was more about social justice issues than the mystery storyline. Maybe better writing would have woven all of the aspects together a little more seamlessly?
