    Brittany wants to find out why her brother is acting so suspicious, but she doesn t want him to know, so she goes behind his back to figure out what he s up to In the book, House on the Gulf by Margaret Peterson Haddix, Brittany and her older brother Bran recently moved to Florida for their mom s college Bran got them a house sitting job where they can live over the summer Recently, Brittany has been noticing that Bran has been acting very suspicious. Bran What are you doing I shrieked.He dropped the flashlight and it rolled toward me I picked it up Jeez, Britt, you scared me to death, Bran said, jerking the flashlight out of my hand He shone it right onto my face, like I was a suspect of a crime What are you doing out here I think this is a very important part in the book because it shows how Bran was trying to hide something, but got caught by Brittany You can also see this reaction to when she found him, and made him seem very guilty of something This book is exciting to r...

    Every author is entitled to one or two stinkers So even after reading this, I can still be a loyal fan of Margaret Peterson Haddix.I don t like reading a mystery book when I can figure out the big mystery on page six It was painfully obvious and it was agonizing reading the protagonist being so clueless If anyone beside Margaret Peterson Haddix had written the book, I would have st...

    We all know Margaret Peterson Haddix is one of my favorite authors, but this book really cinches it Not only is it a very specific genre sort of a bloodless thriller for kids , but it s something that handles a lot of complicated topics mostly relating to family, trauma, and obligation It s genuinely one of those books that ha...

    Margaret Peterson Haddix s The House on the Gulf presents an interesting premise from the perspective of a girl who thinks her brother has something to hide Britt is an average almost thirteen girl living with her older brother and her mother, who attends college Britt s brother, Bran, lands a job house sitting for a family that s out of town It sounds like a good deal, and almost too good to be true for the family who isn t used to having such accommodations But as Bran s behavior becomes erratic, Britt s convinced that not everything is as it seems As she starts coming across curious pieces of evidence and discussions within the neighborhood, her doubts about her brother take full shape, and ultimately culminate into a scheme that she couldn t see coming.I usually love a good young adult mystery involving the protagonist bargaining with suspicion, especially involving family members But I have to say for the build up, this book didn t tie its ends very well, even aiming for those between the ages of 8 12 Don t get me wrong, Haddix s prose and pacing in each chapter is very well done I found myself going through each chapter, observing and learning as Britt puts pieces together about their situation up until the big reveal However, despite an...

    Clearly not one of my favorite books by Margaret Petersen Haddix This book did not have the intensity that she has had through out the other books that I have read of hers The House on The Gulf is a story of a young boy named Bran and his sister Britt Bran has been mowing lawns for a family in Florida and comes home one day to tell his mom and sister that he has been asked to house sit for the older couple while they go to New York for the summer His family is so excited since they could barely afford rent in their apartment and really needed a break After moving in Bran had been acting mysterious from the moment they walked in the door He removed every picture from the walls, anything that could possibly break and even the family s plates, cups and silverware Britt has started to wonder what is go...

    Quick Book Summary Bran invited his family to live with him in the Marquises while he house sitted for them Bran started acting weirder and weirder about the house Britt found out that the Marquises are really her mom s parents and their grandparents In the end Bran searched the wrong Marquises and almost went to jail for it After everything was over they got to live with Mrs and Mr Stuldy.I gave the book three stars because I thought it was an interesting yet confusing book I also liked how it had so many cool and exciting twists I recommend this book beacuse it is a really mysterious book and would like to share the mystery with others I liked how Bran always protected Britt, usually I would always fight with my sister I also liked how the setting was when they lived in Florida on the beach in the summer, surrounded by trees, fresh green grass, sand, and water It was exciting and intense when they heard the ...

    It was a mystery but a little bit of a let down an why the brother was hiding things I thought it was going to be a little magical In the end the owner of the house wasn t the Marquises, it was the Marcuses Bran though that the owner of the house was his mom s parents, but it turned out to be another Marcus The reason Bran wanted to stay in his grandparent s house was because they were horrible to her He was working as the lawn boy mowing the lawn and taking care of it The Marcuses go to New York every summer When Mr Marcus dies, Mrs Marcus goes back to Florida to sell the house Thats when its revealed that Mr and Mrs Marcus are NOT the mom s parent s It was a twist but not as big as I was hoping Margret Peterson Haddix is a great author and a...
