If you have a teen who’s interested in horror but isn’t ready for Stephen King, give them anything by Brennea Yovanoff. She definitely knows how to balance creepy with romance and wit, making her books perfect for any teen interested in the genre. The Replacement takes place in Gentry, where every few years a child is stolen and replaced. Mackie is one such replacement, and when circumstances pull him into the world he originally came from, Mackie could be the one to change everything. This is a great, creepy book filled with humor and music. I loved it. Ages 12+
P.S. If they are ready for Stephen King, I highly recommend Pet Semetary. Even King thinks that it’s his creepiest book!
