Breathless and on edge, Cassandra Campbell narrates this horror story with finesse and concentration. Each chapter ends with a cliff-hanger, and there's just enough gore, supernatural lore, and fascination with the unknown to keep the teen listener engrossed. Campbell captures the character of Ellie, a 24-year-old with a troubled past. Full of sarcasm and wit, she tells her story in the first person, which adds to the "gal pal" tone of the narration. In classic Stine style, this story is a hit for the young adult looking for a good spook, and Campbell's charm adds to the mystique. D.L.M.
