Charlie boards a train on a cold winter evening, but his shivering doesn't stop. Soon after he boards, Charlie realizes just how right he was to be wary of this strange train.
"...reminds me of the books I grew up with by RL Stine and Christopher Pike. If you loved those, these will be perfect." ~ BookLover
Charlie's parents drop him off at the train station so he can visit his grandma in Weirdville. It's a cold winter evening, so when his usual train is cancelled at the last second, Charlie wishes he'd stayed home.
An hour later, shivering from the cold, he climbs onboard the next train to Weirdville, even though he'd rather not. It looks like something straight out of the nineteenth century, as if it used a time machine to arrive at the station.
Something is seriously wrong with all the people onboard. If only he could figure out what was going on. If only he could get off the train.
"My daughters and I love the 'Weirdville' series! These books are great for kids who enjoy a little spooky reading but not something so scary they can't sleep." ~ A. LeBlanc

About the Author
Majanka Verstraete begged her Mom to teach her how to read while she was still in kindergarten. By the time she finished fifth grade, she had read through the entire children’s section of her hometown library.
She wrote her first story when she was seven years old, and hasn’t stopped writing since. With an imagination that never sleeps, and hundreds of possible book characters screaming for her attention, writing is more than a passion for her.

Fright Train, A Weirdville Book By Majanka Verstraete Reviewed by Alyssa, dictation taken by Grand mother, Jean Smith The main character of this story is Charlie. His mother drops him off at the train station to catch a train to his Grandmother’s house in Weirdville. The wait is long and cold. He’s warned not to get on the train by a stranger who offers him a ride. But Charlie knows not to talk to strangers or ride with them. When the train arrives he gets on. His ride is very scary. He meets a woman with pale skin, a giant conductor and two kids. The conductor doesn’t like his ticket and chases him through the train. Eventually he ends up meeting Mrs. Weird, a very scary bad woman who wants to kill him. Will Charlie get away? Will he ever see his Grandma? This was a good and scary story. I would tell my friends that it was perfect….. Alyssa age 9. This was a wonderful story I shared with my grand daughters. As you can see she really enjoyed the story. It was well written and very age appropriate. I would highly recommend it to other parents. This story was provided to me for an honest review.
