Follow Me. Review Winner of the Ohio Buckeye Children’s and Teen Book Award “A good introduction to supernatural horror for middle-grade readers, with a suspenseful plot, sinister imagery of possessed dolls, and sympathetic characters.

Alexander is the pseudonym for author Alex R. As Alex–his actual first name–he writes fantasy novels for adults and teens. In both cases, he loves writing fiction drawn from true life experiences. But this book can’t be real Young Josie moves away from her hometown of Chicago and into the home of her Grandma Jeannie with mom and sister, Anna. What they thought would be a quaint place to start fresh turns into their own personal nightmare.

One full of evil dolls, and an ancient spirit living deep in the woods that is trying to claw her way back to the surface of life and regain the power she once had.

This book was such a pleasant surprise and had scenes that seriously creeped me to my core. I’ll always have a soft s Young Josie moves away from her hometown of Chicago and into the home of her Grandma Jeannie with mom and sister, Anna. I’ll always have a soft spot for doll horror, and K.

Alexander did a phenomenal job of not only creeping me out, but creating the scares for a middle grade audience! Strong recommend and 4 stars from me! Jun 05, Landa rated it liked it. I liked the plot, it was unique, ish. But when I reached the end it was obviously quite rushed by the author to finish it. It was getting cheesier and cheesier. I finally finished it, but the author could have done a much better ending Sep 17, Dawn Meyer rated it really liked it.

This book, although aimed for younger readers, kept me intrigued. Even though I did see some things coming, I was still invested to see what was going to be done. Very satisfying.

Nov 17, Jayden rated it it was amazing. It was creepy but i liked it. This was a very quick read, with some of the chapters being only 1 page long which made it easy to get hooked.

The story is simple just follow the rules and you will be fine, you know the 3 simple rules. Simple right?! Welllllllllll, where would the story if not one or more of these rules were broken! Nowhere that is where! Josie and Anna are being made to move from Chicago right into the sticks of nowh This was a very quick read, with some of the chapters being only 1 page long which made it easy to get hooked.

Josie and Anna are being made to move from Chicago right into the sticks of nowhere. When Vanessa comes along it is like sunshine for Josie, she can have a real friend here, even though something feels slightly off with the most popular girl in the school.

However, when she goes home at night, she can hear something in the woods! But what is that! Anna and she has a DOLL!! I mean what will go wrong? When we are first introduced to the dolls and they are all facing the walls, that did unsettle me.

Not sure what is worse having the dolls look at me or not! Plenty of nightmares to keep Josie up at night, and for some reason, they all lead her to one place.

The discovery of the dolls was a nice little twist, but thinking back to one scene where a doll is thrown out the window…. That detail may have made this story a whole lot scarier but I appreciate I am not the age bracket, by over a good 20 years, that they are aiming for.

There is another book in the series which picks up 5 years later, and with the ending we were left with, I will read it because I want to know what is going to happen next! This was a surprisingly creepy book, for being middle grade level.

The imagery surrounding the dolls, particularly in the dream sequences, did NOT hold back. One scene even acted as a bit of jump scare, if you can believe that for a written story.

The characters and relationships, for being a short book, were rather solid, and I felt like the kids behaved realistically despite this being one of those “enigmatic rules get broken” horror stories. The rules are basically as follows: Don’t go into th This was a surprisingly creepy book, for being middle grade level.

The rules are basically as follows: Don’t go into the creepy house behind grandma’s house, Don’t bring in any dolls, and Don’t open windows at night.

These are all the kind of rules that you would think would be very easy to follow, but–because it’s a horror story–all of them must get broken. Considering how the main character is a young tween girl who just moved into town, her primary motivation for breaking them is the fear of embarrassment and the desire to make a new friend, which is sadly realistic despite how bizarre the situation she finds herself in is.

The only thing I didn’t like about this book was the ending. No spoilers, but it felt oddly rushed and anti-climactic. It’s still a good read, but it was a little disappointing. In conclusion, it’s a creepy, fun read despite a weak ending. Feb 24, Ami rated it liked it Shelves: horror.

For a children’s book, this is one of the creepiest covers I’ve seen yet, which of course made me want to read it. It’s a simple story about a 12 year old along with her mom and little sister moving in with her senile grandma view spoiler [or is she? There are 3 strange rules her grandma has for them: don’t leave the windows open at night, no dolls in the house, and never, ever go into the woods.

In classic fashion, each rule is slowly broken and things For a children’s book, this is one of the creepiest covers I’ve seen yet, which of course made me want to read it. In classic fashion, each rule is slowly broken and things get, well, scary. I really liked the buildup in this book and the mystery slowly unraveling.

The pacing was really good but I wish there was just a little more at the end for further resolutions.

It’s not too scary though, just enough to set the reader on edge and build a lot of anxiety, so I would recommend this to a 3rd grader and up. Oct 08, Brittany rated it really liked it. I selected this book for my Banana Splits Book Club for two reasons: 1. It’s October and what is Halloween month with out a good creepy-ish read.

Most kids that come to my book club would never pick up something like this to read for themselves. I was so happy that almost all of my kids that came to book club really enjoyed this book and thought that it was a page-turner! Although the cover looks very creepy, the book itself it not super scary. Something “scary” in the woods and animated dolls.. Something “scary” in the woods and animated dolls This one was a hit for sure! Nov 03, Trevor rated it liked it. This has an effective spooky vibe for a middle grade horror book.

I think the target audience for this one will really dig it. Jan 10, Annabelle. H rated it really liked it. I would recommend this book to people who wouldn’t mind reading a strange book. Nov 19, Koral rated it it was amazing. This was one of the best book i have ever read read. And it was very scary and it really did give me nightmares. One thing i really liked was that it has very good imagery and i imagined everything in m head , it felt like i was the main character.

Right now i am reading “The girl in the locked room” This was one of the best book i have ever read read. Right now i am reading “The girl in the locked room” Mar 04, Natalie Gavrailov rated it it was amazing.

I would say this book deserves a good 5 star rating. I am 9 years old and I have to say, this spooked me out at certain parts. I could visualize it so well. The end really, really makes you wonder. No spoilers here. By far, This might be my favorite book, and I can’t wait to read the second one!

Oct 21, Hailey Woessner rated it really liked it. Horror is one of my favorite genres. I loved this book, I just wish it was longer. The storyline for Vanessa was very intriguing and I loved the way the book ended on a cliffhanger.

I wonder is there is a sequel to it. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Be the first to start one ». Readers also enjoyed. Young Adult. About K. Alexander is the pseudonym for fantasy author Alex R.

Before the war, Sarajevo had been a beautiful, sophisticated city, filled with parks, trees, markets, mosques, synagogues, and both Orthodox and Catholic churches.

Her heart broke when children her own age, whom she knew well, were shot and killed. Even during the war, Zlata continued studying her music and her school subjects as best she could.

While the war continued, foreign journalists found out that a young girl in Sarajevo was keeping a diary, and they came to interview her. In , her diary was published and she and her family managed to escape to Paris. Today, Zlata is in her 30s. She is an Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker in Dublin, Ireland. As a toddler, Malala went with her father to the school where he worked.

Later, as a girl, she would practice giving speeches in front of a mirror. It seems Malala was born to speak out, and that is exactly what she did.

Boys are more likely to receive an education in Pakistan than girls. He was the principal, teacher, and janitor! Malala and her schoolmates enjoyed school and were grateful for the opportunity to get an education. However, in neighboring Afghanistan, the Taliban were re-making the country to reflect a very extreme philosophy.

This included listening to music, dancing, educating girls, and allowing women to venture out freely. Malala was not going to let the Taliban stop her.

She and her friends continued to attend school, and her father continued to teach them. Although they received threats, and even had to stop going to school when the Taliban were present in their area, they kept the school open, and the girls kept coming.

Malala was not alone. People all over the world were watching and growing concerned as the Taliban spread their ideology. As an outspoken and articulate girl, Malala frequently spoke to reporters about the situation for girls in Pakistan. This international exposure must have angered the Taliban. They sent men to threaten Malala and her father. Malala remembers looking online and seeing the death threat against her and simply closing the computer screen and making a decision to never look at those words again.

The school day in October started out as any other day. Now fifteen years old, Malala rushed out the door in the morning to go to school.

The biggest concern on her mind was an exam she had to take that day. Coming home after school, Malala squeezed in to the dyna open-backed van along with her schoolmates. They chatted as usual until the dyna came to a halt. Malala woke up more than a week later in a hospital in Birmingham. During this time she had been in a coma, had been transported out of Pakistan to England for treatment, and the whole world had heard about her ordeal. The hospital in Birmingham received 8, cards for Malala, from well-wishers around the world.

She was finally able to leave the hospital after several months, and had to recover in a new city. I raise up my voice not so that I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard. Those who have fought for their rights: Their right to live in peace. Their right to be treated with dignity. Their right to equality of opportunity. Their right to be educated.

She is the youngest person to have ever won this award. She is still working to ensure that girls can receive an education. Masks recommended but not required for all. Sun 12 – 6. Fri 12 – 6. Sat 10 – 6. Branch Page View All.
