When I was a kid, I distinctly remember my experiences reading books written by authors like Christopher Pike and R.L. Stine's Fear Street. Thrillers made to scare teenagers; like horror movies, they were all very formulaic. Some horrific images stick in my mind even todday (like a girl waking up in her bunk at summer camp finding herself covered in leeches, bleh!) but plot? Characters? I can't recall any of those.

I have been reading this book since I first held it in my hand. First grade, seven years old. it probably wasn't meant for me at that age. But I don't think I got it anyways. I just really liked the aunt. But every year I read it, I like it more and more. And it makes more and more sense. I connect different things every time. It's simply magical.

This was my favorite book for years. I was 12 when i read it, and didn't send it to the second place spot until I read George RR Martin. This story was one of then that I have never stopped thinking about. I think even adults should read to get an idea of a great story line and amazing characters. Thank you Bruce for a truely great story
Another read from my teen years, now packed off into a box. Amazing I never had many nightmares, given the spooky stuff I read.
