Resigned to a boring summer in Halifax, fifteen-year-old Lydia is thrilled when Megan and her gorgeous brother Sam move in across the road. But Megan and Sam's rude, hostile mother, Mrs. Swicker, does everything she can to stop Lydia and her flirty older sister, Jilly, from getting close to their new neighbours. Then Lydia stumbles across two baby rattles hidden in a box in the Swickers' basement--rattles engraved with the names Amy and Michael. Puzzled and suspicious, Lydia revisits the box with Jilly, and they are horrified to discover a gun hidden away alongside the rattles. Lydia's suspicions that Mrs. Swicker is not who she says she is are mounting, but she has no idea what a twisted, dangerous secret she has uncovered until it's almost too late. With its suspenseful plot, entertaining sisterly banter, and pop culture references, Rattled is sure to appeal to teen readers everywhere.
