“Think Rob Zombie meets John Waters meets—I’m not quite sure what, but Kate Jonez’s CANDY HOUSE is a whacked-out, twisted, and original tale of family, obsession, and not-so-neighborly witches. A promising debut!” —Paul Tremblay, author of THE LITTLE SLEEP
“With CANDY HOUSE, Kate Jonez has created a mesmerizing and downright diabolical spectacle. There are enough luscious, disturbing images and wild ideas to send your mind reeling for days after finishing. Highly recommended!” —Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of BLACK & ORANGE and NIGHTMARE BALLAD
