The Grownup by Gillian Flynn
I was so excited when I heard this was being released as its own standalone novella, and it did not disappoint! Part ghost story, part character study, part signature Gillian Flynn mess with your mind, The Grownup is a quick, gripping read that will creep you out and leave you thinking about it for days.
The narrator is a young woman posing as a psychic, who sees easy money when a mother walks in begging for her help. But soon the woman discovers that everything her new client is saying about her haunted house may just be true...
The Grownup is Flynn finding her voice, so its not as absolutely amazing as her other books are. But it is still really, really good. I highly recommend it.
