Sixteen-year-old Blake has always been the responsible one in his dysfunctional family -- the one who drives safely, gets good grades, and looks after his wild younger brother, Quinn. Quinn is his brother's opposite -- a thrill-seeker who's always chasing the next scary rush, no matter what the cost. But Quinn and Blake are in for the surprise of their lives when they're thrust into the world of a bizarre phantom carnival -- and their souls are the price of admission. In order to save his brother, and himself, Blake must survive seven different carnival rides before dawn. Seven rides...it sounds easy. But each ride is full of unexpected dangers, because each ride is a reflection of one of Blake's deepest fears. And the last ride is the worst one of all. Because that's the one that confronts Blake with a terrifying secret from his past -- a secret he's been running from for years.

Full of roller-coaster twists and turns, Neal Shusterman's latest page-turner is an Orpheus-like adventure into one boy's psyche.

Some people say horror is bad. I personally like horror. Some of my friends who also read this book hate horror but they loved the book. I think that almost anybody that is 10+ could love this book. There is nothing to hate about it. I read this book in 3 days and its 200 and something pages. Thats a record for me. When I find a good book I read it non stop. This was one of those books for me. If you think you might read this book and your reading reviews to see if you'll like it. Take my advice, READ IT!!! This is the best book I've ever read in my life and I've read a lot of books.

When a beautiful girl named Cassandra gives him an invitation to an exclusive park, he doesn't want to go. But when Quinn steals the invitation and goes, Blake and his friends must follow to rescue his brother. But none of them expected how dangerous it would really be. In order to leave the park, they must survive 7 terrifying rides before dawn. Will Blake and the others leave the park alive?
