Waterstones Says

A house unwilling to give up its secrets and a teenager with an enquiring mind; Gnuse’s acute dissection of grief, memory and unlikely friendships plays equally well as sinister thriller and poignant meditation.  

Signed Edition with exclusive endpapers.

A Standard edition is available here.

Girl in the Walls is a story of overcoming grief, of unconventional friendships and learning that we shouldn't always fear what we don't understand. It is about understanding the difference between a house and a home and what it means to lose both.

She doesn't exist. She can't exist.

Elise knows every inch of the house. She knows which boards will creak. She knows where the gaps are in the walls. She knows which parts can take her in, hide her away. It's home, after all. The home her parents made for her. And home is where you stay, no matter what.

Eddie is a teenager now, almost a grown-up. He must no longer believe in the girl he sometimes sees our of the corner of his eye. He needs her to disappear. But when his fierce older brother senses her, too, they are faced with the question of how to get rid of someone they aren't sure even exists.

And, if they cast her out, what other threats might they invite into their home?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Bold and compelling, subtle and sublime, with writing so good that you're torn between racing ahead and lingering. I found myself holding my breath and never wanting to leave, despite the darkness. A uniquely gothic tale about grief, belonging and hiding in plain sight' - Jess Kidd, author of Things in Jars

'Gnuse is a writer of vision, who builds up his novel like the most exquisite music box. It plays out perfectly, and will leave you entranced long after its covers are closed' - Ali Shaw, author of The Trees

'Ever been deep underwater, holding your breath, wondering if you will make it to the surface? OK. Remember that famous scene in the movie, Wait Until Dark? Remember that feeling while reading "The Tell-Tale Heart?" Remember the evil character in the movie, No Country For Old Men? Remember the most terrifying nightmare you've ever had? OK, so now: Here's your book, Girl in the Walls, by Adam Gnuse. It's really scary, and literary to boot, going way down deep, and way up high. Gnuse's first novel says that he is the real thing, out of the gate. May the race be long, with many more novels. But he will be hard-pressed to out-do Girl in the Walls' - Clyde Edgerton, author of The Night Train and Killer Diller
