Creepy yes, but not realistically scary. Closest to Lemony Snicket in tone. White’s writing is fun and quirky. The Sinister-Winterbottom twins (yes, that’s their last name) summer plans vanish as their parents send them to stay with an aunt they’ve never met. An aunt who would appear to never have watched any children.  

When she asks if they’d like to spend a week at a waterpark, the answer is a resounding yes. Do waterparks usually have a Gothic theme and a mystery to solve? This one does. A nice summer read that will make you hungry for a churro. I did say it was quirky.
