The Doors by Alice J Black

5/5 Weeping Angels

Amanda Fox is a young girl pulled from the life she knows and dropped into Godfrey Hall, an old house with a secret on the South West coast of England where it never seems to stop raining. 

When left alone in the house, she hears something in the dark confines of the dining room. It comes from the mosaic doors and she soon finds out the mosaic seems to move when she’s alone. 

The mystery of the mosaic consumes Amanda’s life and with the help of others, she finally discovers the secret and finds a way to open them for the first time in over two hundred years.

Anyone who knows me knows I love a creepy gothic novel, and I especially love it when thay creepy novel is YA.

So The Doors hit a lot of my favorite spots. The writing is lovely, atmospheric and paints a great picture. Godfrey Hall is deliciously spooky and Amanda a typical teenage girl who, while sometimes annoying, I bet is very relatable to most teens and written realistically. 

There are twists and turns in this novel that kept me intrigued and never knowing what would happen next.

I would highly recommend this is you are interested in creepy YA, because honestly there are not enough women writing in this genre and as a woman who does this author stands out.
