Trick or Treat by Richie Tankersley Cusick (Book Review)

Martha knew there was something evil about the house she was moving into. It was so cold...and creepy. And it wasn't just the house that was giving her a weird feeling. Martha was sure someone was following her...watching her every move. Then the practical jokes began--the scarecrow with the carving knife in its head, the fire, and the phone calls. It was October, but these were no Halloween tricks. Someone would be coming home this year with more than just a bag of treats. And Martha was the prize.

I requested this book from NetGalley because of the cover, title and because it was around Halloween and since this appeared to be Halloween themed I figured it would be fun. I also assumed it would be somewhat of a “childish” read- sort of like R.L. Stine‘s Fear Street books, but instead it was a little more adult, like Christopher Pike’s books. Continue reading
