Are those cranky old folks at the retirement home really what they seem?

Twelve-year-old Willa Fuller is convinced that the old folks in the shabby boarding house down the street are prisoners of their sinister landlady, Miss Trang. Only when Willa is hired on as housekeeper does she discover the truth, which is far more fascinating.

Eldritch Manor is a retirement home for some very strange beings indeed. All have stories to tell - and petty grievances with one another and the world at large.

Storm clouds are on the horizon, however, and when Miss Trang departs on urgent business, Willa is left to babysit the cantankerous bunch. Can she keep the oldsters in line, stitch up unravelling time, and repel an all-out attack from the forces of darkness ... all while keeping the nosy neighbours out of their business and uncovering a startling secret about her own past?

I loved it. It seemed like it always had something going on. If you like fantasy, you should read this book.

This book is so amazing. At the beggining it was kind of boring but then it got interesting when the 12 year old girl Willa finds out that eveyone in that house has something special for example their is this old lady who always sits on a wheel chair and takes a blanket on her legs , and always wants to go to the sea side. well that was because she was a mermaid. their are more surprises in that book than this!

I think it is a great book, but I'm not interested in fairies! Imagine a twelve year old girl taking care of prisoners! You just keep on reading until your finished the book.
