Weekend Book Giveaway: The Wrong Train

This week we’re giving away an advanced reading copy of The Wrong Train by Jeremy de Quidt. It’s not out until July 25th (and not in our catalog yet), so you could be the first of your friends to read this collection of horror and ghost stories.

From the publisher: Light the candles and shut the door, The Wrong Train is a deliciously creepy and scarily good collection of scary stories, complete with terrifying illustrations from Dave Shelton. Perfect for fans of Patrick Ness, R.L. Stine, and Emily Carroll.

Imagine you’ve just managed to catch your train and you realize it’s the wrong one. You’d be annoyed of course, but not scared . . . Yet.

Imagine you get off the wrong train at the next station hoping to catch one back the way you came. But the station is empty. Again, you’d be annoyed, but not scared . . . Yet.

Imagine someone comes to the station, a stranger who starts to tell you stories to help pass the time. But these aren’t any old stories–they’re nightmares that come with a price to pay. And you want them to stop.

Scared yet? You will be.

For your chance to win tell us your favorite scary or ghost story or one that gave you goosebumps! If you haven’t heard any ghost stories, tell us about the creepiest book you’ve ever read! The ghost story that haunted me as a kid was the one where parents go on vacation in Mexico and bring their son home a dog, only later do they discover at the vet that it’s just a large sewer rat!

Winner will be picked on Tuesday, July 18th with the assistance of Random Number Generator. Be sure to leave a name with your entry, and check back to see if you won. To win you must be a teen (6th-12th grade, or age 12-18) who uses a Sno-Isle Library.

    The curse of Sleeping Beauty was the scariest and creepiest thing I have ever seen. It’s an extreme horror twist on Sleeping Beauty. You will never think of Princess Aurora the same again. Oh and if you don’t like mannequins stay clear because they are apart of the creepiness!!!!
