You’ve Let Them In by Lois Murphy
Scott is in shock when his family — his father Leo, sister Natalie, the twins and their stepmother Sally — move to a rundown old house on the outskirts of town. The garden is a menacing jungle that refuses to be tamed. An ancient gnome in its midst supposedly stands guard against lurking secrets, much to Scott’s disgust and Sally’s delight. When strange and scary things start occurring and the creatures from the trees begin to invade the house, Scott must face the peril of an unknown force that threatens to turn their world upside down.
‘Gripping, suspenseful, genuinely scary – with an unexpected seam of humour running all the way through.’ — Susan Green, author of the Verity Sparks series
