"Brief hints of school and family drama flesh out the two main characters, and Elliot's snappy first-person narrative will be relatable to teens...A good introduction to scary stories while still being suspenseful enough to hold the interest of older readers, too." (Booklist 2012-10-15)

While this book had some good parts it was all very fast paced and there wasn't enough time to connect to the characters. It was the typical All-American-Sports-Boy-Gets-In-Trouble-From-Goth-Girl's-Friend-And-Him-And-Goth-Girl-Fall-In-Love. It was too short to truly leave a mark in my head.
All in all I would not recommend it unless you needed a book to read when you are having a case of tragic diarrhea and will be in the bathroom for an hour.
