The Monster She Wrote Podcast

Jan 25, 2022

12 year-old Maggie has been moved from boarding house to boarding house. She’s never quite fit in anywhere, as every new school has labeled her “impossible to handle.” Maggie is sent to live at the former Adelphi Hills Academy, a large manor house that looks more like an institution, with her only living relatives, her great aunts Lillian and Harriet, who are cold, severe women obsessed with health and good manners, and her great uncle Morris, who tries his best to bond with the sickly Maggie–to no avail. Maggie is lonely at Adelphi Hills–until she begins to hear the voices coming from behind the walls.
