    A satisfying mix of thrills

    After reading All Hallows' Eve, by Vivian Vande Velde, I wandered over to the author's website and found a long list of books, many of them fantasies for teens, and even a section with a wise and fascinating essay on why books shouldn't be banned. I think I like this author! (Wish I could be in one of her writers' groups!)

    All Hallows' Eve is a fun collection of scary Halloween tales; thirteen of them, of course, all different, all fascinatingly original. There's Granny, offering that perfect spell to the teenaged grandchild. There's the mysteriously talented GPS in a rather battered old car. There's Matt, trying to cope with his quarreling parents when they visit his grandmother's house; lost Edward; found Harlan; five friends having their fortunes told. There's something for everyone-at least, for everyone who fancies a Halloween scare.

    I loved these tormented teen stories, haunting, funny, scary, strange and sad; and I know I'll be looking out for more books by this author. Meanwhile I'll work my way through the writing advice on her site; she seems like an excellent teacher to hope to learn from.

    The Scary Part comes all of a sudden.

    It's never what I expect to happen of course but anyway. The Scaryness comes almost right at the end and then it just ends abruptly too. It's good horror though. I'm reading Now You See It.....
