The Best Story I Can Manage Under the Circumstances ( Five Stories High 4 )

“All right. Here’s another haunted house story for you. Pay attention. There will be questions later. Maybe even a written exam!”

Irongrove Lodge is a house of stories. It draws those with tales to tell, and it shapes it inhabitants through its own constantly evolving story.

An extraordinary boy finds an extraordinary place. When he opens a door that shouldn’t be there, he finds himself gripped by a story that must be told. But how to explain what happened? How to tell a story full of impossible things?
