|Lauren Oliver, author of Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy, makes her brilliant adult debut with Rooms (Ecco), a mesmerizing tale of family, ghosts, secrets, and mystery, in which the lives of the living and the dead intersect in shocking, surprising, and moving ways. Rooms is an enticing and imaginative ghost story and a searing family drama that is as haunting as it is resonant.|
