If so this might not be the book for you, but if you aren’t afraid of much and a trip through a very spooky and almost too real to be true amusement park sounds like fun, then come along for a very thrilling ride in Laurie Faria Stolarz’s WELCOME TO THE DARK HOUSE

You won’t be alone on this trip but in the company of some very unusual characters. The first person you meet, Ivy Jensen, suffers from terrible, sleep stopping, scary feelings don’t go away in the daylight, nightmares. When an announcement in the Nightmare Elf’s newsletter promises to take away the bad dreams of the winners of an essay contest, she starts writing and enters the 1000 words or less contest hoping for a cure. She wins, of course. Arriving via a hearse to the Dark House, a replica of the house from a very scary movie, she joins the rest of the winners, all dedicated horror movie fans. 

Not wanting to ruin this for anyone who decides to join the adventure, there will be no spoiler alerts here, you will just have to see for yourself what lies behind the gate of the Dark House when you read in this fast-paced story told by Ivy and her fellow contest winners. 

For readers in grades 6-8.
