    1. We horror fans often have it rough, enduring scorn and derision from multiple sources That goes double of horror parents, who choose to raise their offspring with a deep appreciation for all things macabre, and so our children have a prayer of surviving a zombie attack And while there are hundreds like thousands of titles out there for tweenie readers, there are precious few that are designed with kids around nine years old in mind Which is why when a book like Crooked Hills Book One comes acro [...]

    3. Charlie and Alex move to Crooked Hills with their mother following the death of their father Along with Marty, their cousin, the brothers begin to explore their new surroundings Marty takes them to Bleeding Rock, a place rud to be the location of the death of an evil witch, and that s where the story really begins Spooky, but at the same time fun, Crooked Hills is a great read for the middle grade age group, though I thoroughly enjoyed it as well Maybe it s cuz I m such a kid at heart.

    4. such a fun read it was modern and spooky and fairly gruesome at times and one of those books you pick up when you climb into bed, saying you ll just read one chapter, then read three and wake up the next morning and read three before even emerging from the covers in an extra special delightful twist, i actually won this book right here on in the giveaways section awesome

    5. From my blog serialdistractions Some of my best memories of childhood are of exploring the woods and wild places around my house during the long summer days of my pre and early teen years My brother and our friends would start roaming as soon as we got up and then were seldom seen before supper The woods teemed with ninjas, evil sorcerers, dangerous Viet Cong, and desperate urban criminals These forces of evil needed dealing with and it was up to us to do it Chuck Norris was simply too busy resc [...]

    6. At some point, the head noise of adult life dulls out a vital sense that kids know deep down in their bones sometimes what you re looking for is also looking for you.Charles Charlie Ward is almost 13, and newly made man of the house after his father s recent death in a suspicious hit and run accident Charlie s a Chicago kid who s looking forward to losing his troubles in a summer of video games, horror novels, ghost stories, and baseball with his friends, until certain doom hijacks his plans a f [...]

    7. Right from the beginning, Cullen Bunn s new book, Crooked Hills, brought a smile to my face It was reminiscent of the scary books I used to read as a kid, but neither the writing nor the story was dated in any way Just a few pages in, and I wished I was curled up in a window seat, storm brewing for added effect, all alone in a creepy old house Twelve year old Charlie Ward, his little brother Alex, and his mom travel to Crooked Hills, Missouri to stay with his Aunt Mary, Uncle Shorty, and Cousin [...]

    8. I don t read many Young Adult books, but I m glad I gave this one a try Right off the hop I got caught up in the plot and the characters, and kind of forgot it was a YA novel.Before becoming a fan of Cullen Bunn s work, I d never heard of a haint or a fetch, nor did I know that blue jays fly to Hell on Fridays to get their orders from the Devil Cullen frequently laces his fiction with elements of southern gothic horror Somehow he manages to make the small towns he creates seem quaint and charmin [...]

    9. Charmingly creepy and creepily charming, this book is a Hardy Boys mystery for the modern kid except the chills and thrills are a lot real and honestly earned I wouldn t recommend this book for kids who get night terrors or are easily frightened, but your jaded middle schooler who is pretty sure he she has seen and heard it all might just find himself goosed into leaving the night light on for a few evenings.And the narrative voice is just perfect Charlie Ward as a Lovecraft fan, I really want [...]

    12. Well written filled with mystery and suspense, and sure to entertain along the way I was sursprised at how much I liked it, as I wasn t quite sure that I would But as I read I became immerserd in the characters and the quirky plot It was entertaining and fresh, though there were some very musty corpses involved I would recommend this to the middle school aged child.

    13. I received this book yesterday, and set it on my desk to read, and my 14 year old walked by, read the back, and stole it About 1 2 an hour later, he asked Can I read this before you So I assume he liked how it beganwill review as soon as I can.
