Pike is so re-readable because there's always some matter of folklore or legend intertwined into his storylines. Though the plots may seem especially young adult, with titles like "Monster," there is much more involved in making his books creepy in a most realistic way. This book begins with a high school girl crashing a party with her shotgun and killing two people and trying to kill a third before her friend, Angela, stops her. I loved Angela's evolution through the book - the final page really gave me goosebumps.
