This was a very nice idea, and I enjoyed the story. That ending though, I feel slightly tricked because my showed 67%, but the rest is just a preview of another book.

I really liked this story. Though its short i really got a sense of the characters Leslie and Evy's friendship. evy is the bright star in the relationship and Leslie orbits around her. That changes whe the Marsh boys come to their school.
First Evy begins to blow off hanging out with Evy and then a stranger transformation begins that will change both the girls lives. A nice read and an interesting ending.

I loved the voice and details in this story, as well as the premise. The characters felt well-developed, too. I wanted more of them! My wish for this story was more of an ending. It felt really abrupt, and wasn't as scary as I was expecting.

This was one of those stories where at the end I sat back in my recliner and stared at the ceiling for a few minutes. I enjoyed the story. It was a bit creepy (and I love creepy!)and the characters were alright. Unfortunately, they didn't leave a lasting impression on me.
