The town of Saltlick Bluff is famous for an urban legend. Does the spirit of a young girl wait on a misty cliff-hugging highway for her ride to the prom?
In the house on Beech Street, a terrible tragedy occurred. Now neighbors won’t look at the place as they pass. Those who live nearby draw their blinds and shutter their windows after dark. What are they afraid of?
Hale Hallow Woods seems sinister and menacing even in the light of day. Does a thirst for revenge beat near its dark heart?
The answers lie within these pages, just waiting to send a chill up your spine!

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
I enjoyed these short stories and wish it had been around when my boys were young. They would have enjoyed them too. Like the title says, they’re hair-raising tales rather than out and out horror. The stories are well written and easy to follow, definitely kid friendly.
From the little girl who can heal to the boy who is haunting a house, the stories are a little scary, a little ironic, and a lot of fun to read.
