As an introduction to the horror genre, The First Horror by R.L. Stine is a good choice. For the younger (10-14 year old) reader, it would have just enough blood and trauma to whet the appetite. The older reader would recognize that it isn't very developed. It tells the story of a family of 5 moves into a 30 year old house that has never been lived in due to a bad reputation amongst the town. Things start to happen and people start getting hurt. The first in a series, it's a set up book. Readers who continue the series will come to recognize the characters and why they act the way they do and say the things they say. It's a good introduction to the horror genre, but one older readers will quickly put down for a more satisfying read.
