"Amy Foster considers herself lucky. After she left the city and moved to the suburbs, she found her place quickly with neighbors Liz, Jess, and Melissa, snarking together from the outskirts of the PTA crowd. One night during their monthly wine get-together, the crew concoct a plan for a clubhouse She Shed in Liz's backyard--a space for just them, no spouses or kids allowed. But the night after they christen the She Shed, things start to feel... off. They didn't expect Liz's little home-improvement project to release a demonic force that turns their quiet enclave into something out of a nightmare. And that's before the homeowners' association gets wind of it. Even the calmest moms can't justify the strange burn marks, self-moving dolls, and horrible smells surrounding their possessed friend, Liz. Together, Amy, Jess, and Melissa must fight the evil spirit to save Liz and the neighborhood... before the suburbs go completely to hell."--Page 4 of cover.

Unemployed social worker Amy and her friendsâexercise enthusiast Jess, mother hen Liz, and hard-working Melissaâare excited to have a clubhouse for their group's monthly movie-and-drinks nights. But when they break ground in Liz's backyard for the "She Shed," an unholy smell is released, along with an unholy presence. Soon, Liz turns listless and cruel, household items such as Roombas and weed whackers attack the women out of nowhere, and Amy's daughter is plagued by visions of a malevolent woman. Research at the historical society in their upscale Chicago suburb reveals the identity of the angry spirit, but the friends are going to need to tap into their reserves of strength and love for each other to force it to relinquish its hold on Liz. This novel about the horrors of suburbiaâboth supernatural and terrestrial in originâhas plenty of genuinely funny moments and relatively few real scares. More Desperate Housewives than The Amityville Horror, this is a good fit for fans of Grady Hendrix's My Best Friend's Exorcism (2016), Rachel Harrison's The Return (2020), or Junji Ito's horror manga Uzumaki (2008).
