C'mon, I know it's cliche, but I've got to do it!
This isn't your typical spooky ghost story--there are no ghosts, for one. But it's properly creepy, starting off with an eerie scene in an abandoned building that I visualized a little too well at 2am. In this story, Mara is a witness to a horrific accident...but it was not what she thought it was, and the consequences of that night aren't leaving her alone.
I sort of thing you should buy this one for Halloween based on the cover alone.
If that's not enough for you, how about this: ghosts, revenge, death. There. Go buy it for Halloween.
This is another one that's not a typical Halloween book--but there are ghosts--or at least the fear of them--and what I like is that this book also combines history, race, and relationships in with the ghost story.
What spooky reads are you checking out this Halloween?
Also--a little bit of a self plug, but I'm giving away 19 signed YA books here to prep for the next holiday--Thanksgiving!
