"I would recommend a wonderful, scary Ray Bradbury novel that has always been one of my favorites—Something Wicked This Way Comes. Late at night, a boy in the midwest sneaks out of his house to go watch a carnival set up in an empty field. He doesn’t realize it’s a carnival of evil and he’s about to be trapped in all its horror.” Stine adds, “I would also recommend The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. A bit difficult but accessible enough to Y.A. readers and worth it for the amazing imagination and droll humor and unforgettable characters."
