Wish List Wednesday

House of Secrets (House of Secrets, 1) by Chris Columbus and Ned Vizzini, April 23, 2013. Published by Balzer + Bray.

The Pagett kids had it all: loving parents, a big house in San Francisco, all the latest video games . . . but everything changed when their father lost his job as a result of an inexplicable transgression. Now the family is moving into Kristoff House, a mysterious place built nearly a century earlier by a troubled fantasy writer with a penchant for the occult.
Suddenly the siblings find themselves launched on an epic journey into a mash-up world born of Kristoff’s dangerous imagination, to retrieve a dark book of untold power, uncover the Pagett family’s secret history and save their parents . . . and maybe even the world.
Why: I am wishing for House of Secrets because it sounds wildly imaginative, and the cover has me extremely curious about this book.
