"I'm not sure anyone does suspense quite like D. J. MacHale." -James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of the Maze Runner series

Leave the lights on for this spooky thriller from D. J. MacHale, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Pendragon ! Enter the Library, where no one knows how the stories end . . . and finding out will be terrifying.

There's a place beyond this world, beyond the land of the living, where ghosts go to write their unfinished stories-stories that ended too soon. It's a place for unexplained phenomena- mysteries that have never been solved, spirits that have never been laid to rest. And there's only one way in or out.

It's called the Library, and you can get there with a special key. But beware! Don't start a story you can't finish. Because in this library, the stories you can't finish just might finish you.

Boy finds out that he is the keeper of a key to The Library and evil phantom is after it. (At the beginning, I really don't like the negative reinforcement of the pit bull vision.....of all the dogs in the world, really.) The beginning is so promising: action, tense, scary. Then there seems to be alot of time spent on trying to convince the boy that supernatural things exist. 100 pages in and he's still doubtful. Realistically, even if you don't believe in ghosts the things that were happening to him should have easily convinced a young person. Especially a young person. Adults are skeptical, kids are not. Then you have an evil lady coming after you with hallucinations that feeds on fear and you get scared and believe everything in front of you? Then you trap her and instead of leaving her in The Library, you put the box in the ocean for anyone to pull up? Are kids really that dumb. This book is definitely for the third graders.

While I loved every other book by D. J. MacHale, I simply did not enjoy ‘Curse of the Boggin.’ Doctor-at-Bass-Fishing. Taylor A.
