“[W]ill be intriguing to middle and high school readers interested in suspense and the paranormal.”—School Library Journal
“The author crafts a solid-enough little ghost story, leaning on propulsive action and simple characterization . . . to build up to the big scares. The enterprise reads like a Goosebumps book for teenagers. . . . A superfast, sturdy-enough creep show.”—Kirkus Reviews
Author: J. Fallenstein
J. Fallenstein likes to scare herself by asking "what if?" She sometimes writes scary stories that answer that question. You can find her at midnight in Minnesota wide awake wondering what that noise was.
