I disagree with the classification of this book as young adult. IMO, this book is more juvenile adult, with a slightly pulpy odor. The horror YA genre has really taken off with well written, lyrical, deeply moving stories like A Monster Calls, The Reapers are the Angels, and Rot and Ruin. This book is a pale, often silly imitation.

Roberta R. (Offbeat YA) Quote: "This book is a pale, often silly imitation".
Sorry - I'm not the biggest fan of this book, but truth be told, it isn't an imitation by any means, since it was written in 1992...maybe the ones you mentioned tried to copy it ;).
