Could there be a hidden room somewhere in your house? And just what would you find lurking there?
Nate, his little sister, and best buddy Dan, stumble upon a hidden room during a sleep-over. What they find inside is anything but friendly.
I got this as a freebie on Amazon some time ago, and when I finished the last book, found it already loaded on the Kindle. Convenient and short, so why not? I hadn't remembered it was a short story for "younger readers", so my expectations were entirely off the mark.
I think a young YA (pre-teen? "tween"?) reader might enjoy this story. For me, it was a little too short and rushed, and there were many things that could've been fleshed out to make it a stronger story. However, I'm not the target audience... The kernel of the story is interesting, though, and it's definitely creepy.
I think the ebook includes a bonus story or two, but I don't think I'll bother.
