Meet Laurie Stolarz!
Teen thriller fiction. Did you know such a thing existed? I didn't. If I had, I would have found (and bought) this incredible series from Laurie Stolarz when I was combing the bookstore shelves for Chanukah gifts for my kids.
But better late than never. I've decided I'm going to get these even though the holidays are past. My kids are readers, and I think the older two are going to devour these.
My thirteen-year-old--who usually reads only nonfiction--is deep into The Shining right now, and I've been eager to find more books to ride his current wave of interest in things magical and creepy.
My eleven-year-old loves nothing more than getting attached to a really good series, and I think this will capture him with its magic. Check out this review I found, written by a kid his own age:
Blue is for Nightmares
Great, huh? I think I'll be making a trip to Border's today.
