Otherwise, write three sentences about your favorite part of the book.: The problem in this book was that the Finn’s moved into a new house in Upstate New York. Kelly hated the house and so did Liam. It was very creepy and stuff moved by itself, fans spoke, toy letters on the fridge moved to spell out the message “Leave now, love Mom” (but mom had died before).

The family then decided to move back to their old town, Hopeville.
