The House Party
By Rita Cameron
Rita Cameron's, The House Party, is a realistic glimpse of how easily, and quickly, things can go wrong. Mia and her husband are moving from the city to a small suburban town. While their beautiful new home is in its final stages of construction, local high school kids throw a party in the empty house that gets out of hand. The aftermath for Mia, the town, and its residents, depicts how families close ranks to protect their children.
I really enjoyed this book as it made me think about how this could actually happen, and how I would react if my own children were involved. It was an original and interesting idea for a book. The tension between the characters seeped out of the book it was so well done.
