the uninvited by Tim Wynne-Jones

If you're looking for a suspenseful mystery with endearing characters, look no further. The Uninvited tells the story of Mimi Shapiro, who's just had a really crappy freshman year at NYU; Jay, who's just finished college and is working on his music; and Cramer, who works two jobs to pay the bills for his crazy mother and is obsessed with Mimi and Jay. Their lives couldn't be more different but somehow entwine via a little cabin on a snye in rural Canada. The twist at the end will surprise you.
