Southwest Branch Library

Can YOU survive for more than THREE hours straight reading the spookiest book you can find?! If you’re between the ages of 12 and 18, come read the day away with us. Find out if you can survive the challenge. You bring the pillows, and we’ll bring the snacks!

Check out one of these creepy reads:

Whispers From the Dead
by Joan Lowery Nixon
After making contact with the spirit world during a near-death experience, Sarah moves to Houston with her parents and receives otherworldly messages about a murder committed in her house.

Being Dead
by Vivian Vande Velde
What happens when a sixteen-year-old girl falls in love with a two hundred-year-old ghost? Or when a newly dead boy gets robbed by his unscrupulous boss? Or when a heartless man finally agrees to dance with his wife . . . after she’s passed away?

Lord Loss: The Demonata #1
by Darren Shan
Presumably the only witness to the horrific and bloody murder of his entire family, a teenage boy must outwit not only the mental health professionals determined to cure his delusion, but also the demonic forces only he can see.
