They see creeThis story is about two boys(Darren and Steve) who get tickets to a freak show that they're not supposed to attend because of their age. They see creepy creatures that perform at a "haunted" theater at night including spiders, wolf man, a vampire, and many more. The most dreadful and astonishing thing is that Steve recognizes the vampire from one of his comic books, Mr. Crepsley! Soon, they get into trouble with the vampire and Steve almost loses his life, but thanks to his friend Darren, he helps save his friend but has to pay up the consequences with the vampire himself.

In other words, they both had a connection towards each other which makes their love stronger in many ways. Also, this story contains sad parts in which they make you feel unhappy for the decisions that are being made but still, this book is one to be read!...more
