Reader reviewed by Jessica Souder



This was a very cute read! Perfect
for young adults and the young at heart who like the B-rated black and white
films. I started it yesterday, and after a slow start, got hooked in, finishing
it in less than 24 hours. All in all it was very entertaining, though I felt the
characters could use a bit more fleshing out. All the kids pretty much felt the
same,including their dialogue, minus "little dude," Cody. He was the
most fascinating and unique character of the bunch.




I was worried it would be a hooky rendition of recent
horror films, such as Black Sheep, but was pleasantly surprised that not only
was it uproariously funny, making me laugh several times, it had a good moral
that wasn't at all preachy.




The ending was not as I'd expected it, and was a
refreshing contrast to the normal "formula" ones of the genre.




The only disappointment was the "Romance"
between Randy and Helen. It felt as if it had been thrown in because the author
felt it needed a romance. In this reader's personal opinion, it could have been
left out. However, it didn't really detract from the read, just made me wonder
why it was there.




The reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because I
felt this book could have used a better edit. There were several typos and a
few They're instead of there or theirs. And you're instead of yours.




Overall, I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for
the paperback edition to come out so I can give it to my son.
