Darkness Creeping, Twenty Twisted Tales by Neal Shusterman, 291 pages
Neal Shusterman writes some odd and creepy books, so a collection of twisted short stories must be outstanding. These definitely were stories I wouldn't want to read late at night and home alone. Samantha (my 9-year-old) had checked out this book and left it in the van. I discovered it sitting at Sonic waiting for my order and was hooked by the end of the first story. The stories feature the roller coaster from hell, a little girl scared of monkeys, a grandma going crazy (0r is she) and a security blanket that doesn't seem that comforting.
