Gillian Flynn, New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl, is back with a short story called The Grownup. The Grownup is a chillingÂ ghost story about a suburban family in a Gothic Victorian home.
The nameless narrator is a young grafter woman. She works at a spiritual shopâ€”in front they provide women with psychic readings; in back, they provide pleasure to men. One day, a disheveled woman, Susan, enters the shop and asks for help. Her house may be haunted, and her unusual stepson may have sinister intentions.
