Title: Thirteen Chairs
Author: Dave Shelton
Recommended for: 5th- 8th
Call Number/Link: Teen Fiction Shelton, D.
Synopsis: In an abandoned house, the ghosts gather. They argue, they laugh, and they tell their stories. Some tell their own stories, some tell stories they have heard elsewhere. Some of them are true, some are not. But each tale draws you closer.
One by one, the storytellers depart, until suddenly it’s just you and the narrator, alone in the dark…
My Thoughts: 8th grade may be pushing it a little for this one, but it’s a general all ages one. The stories for me were necessarily scary, but several of them were fun/creepy. This would be a great read for those who like Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, Goosebumps, or even Skeleton Creek.
