Stay in Touch Sign up. I just found your blog, and I love reading about all these old books i used to be obsessed with! I was such a nonconformist that I never read those because they were so popular-now I feel like I missed out! I also read this one. Btw-it's fine to say retarded as long as you use the word correctly and not as a derogatory term. The author wrote a few other books in a similar vein to this.
One called Ghosts Beneath Our Feet where the house was so haunted that it wound up collapsing. I agree that she was even better at the family dynamics than the supernatural elements. I hadn't thought about this one in a while but I still own the book the old version. Ghost Beneath Our Feet. God, I know I read that but I hadn't thought of it in years. Kathryn — thanks for the link!
This brought back so many memories! I'm hating myself for not remembering many of the books you write about. What's wrong with me? Ally, I'm pretty sure we're about the same age, which means definitely NOT too old! I just had the good fortune of growing up very close to an amazing used book store AND having two older sisters who loved to read nearly as much as I did.

Our house was a children's and Y. OMG, I loved the shit out of this book, although: a adult me also isn't so cool with the ending, and b I also agree that Amy was given too much responsibility for a year-old. I thought that even then—why hadn't her parents ever taken Louann to Mrs. Peck's before, especially considering Mrs. Peck had a special needs granddaughter about her age? Would have given both Amy and Louann some much-needed space and independence. Oh well. Also, what I really remember is how Clare talked about her "friendly little block" in Chicago and how she'd go grocery shopping for just a few items at a time.
The Dollhouse Murders by gaetane jeudy on Prezi
I now live on a "friendly little block" in Chicago and grocery shop the same way—and sometimes I think of this book! I just found your blog when I saw you posted on another blog I read.
I had to comment when I saw this book review. It was just the right amount of creepy for me. Love love LOVE this…Thanks a million over for going through the trouble of tracking down the original cover, or else I would never have remembered it existed. And yes, I was totally scared of this book. I loved Christina's Ghost by the same author I believe.
The Dollhouse Murders
That one was so much creepier I thought. I just found your blog thanks to the article on EW, and it rocks! I loved this book growing up! This book terrified me when I read it! I read this and Behind the Attic Wall because I had read When the Dolls Woke and really enjoyed it and I stupidly thought they would be in the same vein. Yeah, not so much! My favorite book as a kid!!! Getting it for my 10 year old daughter for a summer reading book: the new cover was soo messing me up!!

He moves to the master bedroom. Get that shit right! Amy Treloar is twelve nearly thirteen years old and she has one big problem — her eleven year old sister, Louann. Louann is mentally retarded is that even a PC word anymore? Amy has made a new friend, Ellen. Ellen seems nice and is sympathetic to Amy when Louann gets in trouble for picking flowers at a florist shop in the mall. When the girls get home, Amy takes out her frustration at always having to watch Louann on their mother, who is shocked that Amy could possibly feel that way.
Amy ought to feel ashamed of herself…blah blah blah. Amy and Aunt Clare get along very well.

They are cleaning out the attic and Amy comes across a gorgeous dollhouse. Amy is enthralled by the dollhouse, but Aunt Clare seems less than happy to have found it. According to Aunt Clare, it was a gift for her fifteenth birthday from her Grandparents. At the time, Clare was ungrateful about the gift, and seeing it brought back memories of what a brat she acted like.
