Books To Give You The Shivers

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Are your young patrons looking for a good read that will send a chill up their spines? Lead them to one of these great books.

Sometimes we just like to be sacred. Young people are no different. Good thrillers can give them a bit of a fright without leaving them ungrounded. Here are some books perfect for a dark winter night.

For Intermediate Grades

  • One Sister Too Many, by C.S. Adler
    In this sequel to Split Sisters, Case tries to convince her parents that things are not right with the baby-sitter they hired to take care of her new little sister. Unfortunately, she's proven correct when the sitter kidnaps the baby.
  • The Twin in the Tavern, by Barbara Brooks Wallace
    Taddy, is orphaned for a second time with the death of his grandparents. He takes his uncle's last words to heart, "Find your twin, and you'll know who you are." Taddy is forced to work for two thieves, fed only scraps, and punished for any minor infraction. Things don't stay bleak for Taddy, with an old fashioned happy ending.
  • The Boggart, Susan Cooper
    The Colnick family inherits a crumbling Scottish castle, and along with the castle comes a mischievious spirit called the Boggart, that is accidentally shipped to their home in 20th century Toronto.
  • Mystery at Loon Lake, Gilbert B. Cross
    Jeff and Nguyen Glover team up with Jenny Webber to track and find dangerous smugglers. With swamps, abandoned houses, and narrow tunnels, there are enough twists to keep readers on the edge of thier seats.
  • Bernie Magruder and the Drive-Thru Funeral Parlor, by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
    An embesslement scheme, a missing company vice-president, and a corpse from a casket add up to mystery, excitement, and fun for Bernie and his friends at the Bessledorf Hotel. This is a renamed version of The Face in the Bessledorf Funeral Parlor.
