Face to Face with the Unknown: True Stories about Young People's Encounters with the Unexplained

Overview

The line that divides fiction from fact is not always as clear as it may seem.

Two plus two equals four, right? But what if just once two plus two equaled...five. Hard to believe?

Absolutely.

But for the young people whose stories are related here, that is exactly what happened. Each of them experiences something that simply could not be explained.

For instance, two boys ...

Overview

The line that divides fiction from fact is not always as clear as it may seem.

Two plus two equals four, right? But what if just once two plus two equaled...five. Hard to believe?

Absolutely.

But for the young people whose stories are related here, that is exactly what happened. Each of them experiences something that simply could not be explained.

For instance, two boys forced to spend the night in their car during a bad storm learn the next morning that an eyewitness swears he saw four burly men inside their care scare off a gang. But who were the men? The boys were alone that night. Another time, a teen on the way home from a date comes upon strange alien forms in the road ahead. He chases after them only to discover "humanoid" imprints in the grass. Not even the local sheriff can explain it.

Mysterious sightings, alien encounters, guardian angles, ghostly hauntings, bizarre visitations...In dozens of stories teens relate real-life experiences with the unknown.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Ranging from simply odd to strange, mysterious, and downright spooky, these tales of the unknown are sure to please YA readers. Stories go from the boy who absorbed knowledge by sleeping on his books (and didn't we all wish for this one!) to tales of angelic interventions, UFOs and ghosts. These stories are claimed to be real-life occurrences. And they all happened to young people. Some readers may be skeptical; however, YAs sometimes practically gorge themselves on tales of the otherworldly. These stories are short and easy to read. While they go places logical people may not be comfortable with, the stories are never gross or gory and are tastefully handled. KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2000, Tor, 244p. bibliog. 18cm., $5.99. Ages 13 to 18. Reviewer: Elsie Keyes; Teacher & Libn., Kalispell, MT , July 2001 (Vol. 35, No. 4)
