Why read it?

1 author picked Out to Get You as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Writing a really good spooky short story is hard. Writing 13 of them is near-impossible. Yet Allen has put together an anthology of sheer terror, with each story hinging on something simple and mundane. Basically, Allen makes you afraid of everything, and does it with a smile.

From David's list on spooky middle grade books.
