This was creepier than his last one (Whisper Man). A few twists and turns and you don't know who or what is going on until the final few pages. All centered around lucid dreaming, North does a great job at creeping you out and describing haunting ideas!

After that a battle of wits ensues! Who will win? Man or beast??

This novel reminded my of The Great Gatsby only racy and erotic. Newlyweds Henry and Effie spend their honeymoon on the nearly deserted Cape May. Here they meed socialites Clara and Max. Partying and drinking ensues, along with something more taboo.

Jennifer McMahon's novel, The Invited, is a creepy, edge of your seat thrill ride. Helen and Nate buy a piece of property and build their own house. Helen wants to incorporate local history into their build. Once she does strange things start to happen. She might have built her own haunted house! Creepy good fun!!

This is a great piece of regional non-fiction. Gregg talks about the Sunshine Mine Fire in 1972. He reads like a novel and you won't want to put it down. My grandfather and uncle are in the book (both survived). Great read for any history or regional buff!

I love all of Sharon Creech's novels, and this is no exception. Louie has problems with raising animals, but when a sickly baby donkey comes home, his luck just might change. Quick, easy, and fun read for the whole family.
