Meredith Willis is suspicious of Adrien, the new guy next door. When she dares to sneak a look into the windows of his house, she sees something in the cellar that makes her believe that Adrien might be more than just a creep—he may be an actual monster.
But her sister, Heather, doesn’t share Meredith’s repulsion. Heather believes Adrien is the only guy who really understands her. In fact, she may be falling in love with him. When Adrien and Heather are cast as the leads in the school production of Romeo and Juliet, to Heather, it feels like fate. To Meredith, it feels like a bad omen. But if she tries to tear the couple apart, she could end up in the last place she’d ever want to be: the cellar. Can Meredith convince her sister that she’s dating the living dead before it’s too late for both of them?
I wasn’t sure exactly what I was getting into with The Cellar, but what I found was a fun story and a great read.
Meredith is a typical high school misfit, she has had a rough time with the death of her father in a car accident, her sisters injuries in that same accident, her mothers checking out and her aunt and cousin moving in to help out. But all of that is pretty tame in comparison to what she has to face when Adrien St. Germain moves in next door.
I really enjoyed this story. The interactions between the characters were well written and fun and there is a twist to the story that I found very interesting.
I would defiantly recommend The Cellar to anyone over the age of 13. Any younger than that and it may be too graphic.
