Product description


“Thrilling, chilling, and utterly riveting. Tiffany D. Jackson crafts high-stakes tension, a deliciously creepy atmosphere, and characters you really, really hope make it to the end." -- Karen McManus, #1 New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying

“The creeps come on slowly, then start to build. When the cold shivers ran down my back, I wanted to scream—but I was too busy turning pages. I had to know: Just how frightening will it get?” -- R.L. Stine, author
Goosebumps and Fear Street

“Tiffany Jackson takes the classic haunted house story to the next level by infusing it with her trademark twists and turns and her brilliant and unflinching prose.
White Smoke is a gripping, unsettling, and incisive novel by a YA powerhouse who knows her thrills—and her chills.”  -- Courtney Summers, New York Times bestselling author of Sadie and The Project

"Jackson conjures horrors both supernatural and otherwise in a masterful juxtaposition of searing social commentary and genuinely creepy haunts, as well as providing an authentic portrayal of tensions within a blended family. Begs to be finished in one sitting, though maybe with the lights kept on." --
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Jackson delivers multilayered frights in a true horror tradition, peppered with instantly recognizable references to urban legends and internet horror culture." --
Publishers Weekly

“A transcendent, genre-defining masterpiece. Jordan Peele would be proud.”  --

Jackson is one of the most innovative YA suspense writers in recent years, and her latest is no exception.”  -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"The nuanced depiction of Mari’s struggle with mental health is emotionally resonant; the story of a mostly Black city nearly wiped out by draconian drug laws and gentrification is authentic and timely; and the simmering tension and jump scares make the horror element satisfyingly chilling... Jackson ticks off the best tropes of horror here with enthusiastic glee, and Ms. Suga will have more than a few readers checking their basements before bedtime." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“The queen of YA returns.” --
Entertainment Weekly

Praise for Grown: "Gripping in both its content and format... Jackson's writing some of the best thrillers for teens these days." -- Booklist (starred review) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than a spooky story
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 11, 2021
A novel about a teenage girl, Marigold, running away from the ghosts of her old life and those in the haunted house she has just moved into with her blended family.

Themes in this book include anxiety, friendship, family and community.

I don’t normally read scary books and wouldn’t have enjoyed reading this book if that was all it was. It was much more than that.

The character development was great, they were all believable and mostly lovable even with their flaws.

There were a couple of great friendships in the story, everyone needs a friend like Tamara or Yusef.

Anxiety was well explored and I found my empathy increasing as I got deeper into the story.

Overall an all round good book, does more than it says on the cover.

This book gave me chills. I even started hearing things.

This book is about Mari and her family moving to a deserted town that turns out to be haunted. Her mom won a contest and they get to live in this house free of rent. Things quickly start to become creepy.

I was not a huge fan of Piper and Alec. Alec gave me racist vibes with some of the things he would say, and I also feel like Mari’s mom was not taking up for her and letting her husband say and do cruel things. I do not give Piper a pass whatsoever. I’m a teacher and at 10 years old, she knows better. She was intentionally malicious and nearly committed murder. How Mari’s mom stayed with Alec, I do not know.

I felt for Mari and how she was trying to do right (minus the secret garden). I hated how everyone kept bringing up the past and just going in on her like everything was her fault.

And let’s not forget the neighbors. Very much gave me “Get Out” vibes.

All I’m all, the book was thrilling to say the least. I got through it in 3.5 hours. I’ve read a few of this author’s books before and she never disappoints.
