3 0ut of 5

I have been a fan of Shusterman's since reading Unwind. I guess I just can't a story to scary me, however these stories were better and scarier than Schwartz.  He definitely completed each story and I felt the writing was better.  I enjoyed the illustrations more as well.  This book is not published in audio, however I think it would be a great choice, especially with a narrator that can create a creepy scary voice. This would be a good read for older junior high and high school teens.  There is also a sequel titled Darkness Creeping II: More Tales to Trouble Your Sleep.  Check them out if you dare.
