Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Teens like scary movies. They like to watch movies about witches, monsters, dragons, demons and science fiction such as UFO's, ESP, and aliens. Throughout history, teens have always been intrigued with the supernatural and paranormal. Did you know that Frankenstein was the creation of a teenager? What kind of influence do the occult and violence have on teens? Some teens have gotten involved with the occult to the point they believe they really are witches or vampires. Others become involved with Goths who wear black, are obsessed with death, and other riskier things, like drinking each others blood. This detailed book discusses the occult, its influences, and the history of the supernatural. The "end times," angels, facts and fiction about the supernatural are featured as well. The Gallup Surveys show us what teens think about the supernatural and why they are fascinated with this subject. Teachers, parents, youth leaders, and teens would profit from reading this interesting book. It is part of the "Gallup Youth Survey: Major Issues and Trends" series. 2005, Mason Crest Publishers, Ages 12 to 18.
