This story is about two kids named Josh and Aaron Peshik, who live in a house with tilting floors. They have many exciting adventures in this house after they find the diary of the mad scientist who built the house.
This book was so good because it has a lot of adventure, and I love adventure. The ending was my favorite part of the book. It was so detailed and made perfect sense. All of the characters in the book are believable.
My favorite characters are Josh and his neighbor, Lola. What I like about Lola and Josh is that they are not afraid of anything and love to be adventurous.
I would recommend this book to all teenagers and younger kids who can read alone. My brother, Richard, is almost sixteen, and he really liked this book, too. I would love to read another book by this author.
A word of caution (or encouragement, depending on whether you like adventure as much as Marie): this book contains talking rats, growth potion, and buried treasure. Who, at any age, can resist all of that? In case you think you are capable of resistance, I dare you to check out the brilliantly designed official website for The Tilting House. Watch the video (there or below), play with the growth powder, and listen to the old man muttering to himself.
I gave this book to Marie to review so that I could weasel out of writing a review, but now I'm sorry that I did that without reading it first because she doesn't want to give the book back.
