2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The House on Fremont Drive (146-06-10-2016)

This should probably be an Honorable Mention. I wasn't sure if it was an Young Adult novel or not, because most of the main characters are teens. But the themes, plot development, and ideas inside the book is all pretty adult stuff. In fact, it's an intriguing mixture of' characters and genres, from the paranormal tale to the Svengali-manipulation story and also a pretty sturdy YA romance, but in the end it all coheres and tells a pretty good story with a satisfying ending.
