Here There Are Monsters

by Stacey Lee

Here There Are Monsters

by Amelinda Berube

Here There Are Monsters is a terrifyingly good choice if you’re in the mood for chilling YA literature this October. The story begins when two teen sisters, Skye and Deirdre, move across the country to a new house situated on the edge of a creepy forest and a foggy swamp. When Deirdre starts wandering around the woods and making strange totems out of twigs and bones, Skye assumes it’s just her social misfit sister acting weird as usual. Then Deirdre vanishes.

Will Skye be able to save her sister and come to grips with the true depth of the darkness she’s about to uncover?

The author creates a vivid (albeit bleak) atmosphere throughout her novel that is guaranteed to give readers goosebumps. There is an underlying message relating to the damage caused by bullying, but the book will mostly resonate with young fans of Gothic horror stories/movies who are in for a good scare.

If you’re looking for a terrifyingly good book to keep you up at night, Here There Are Monsters is for you.

Middlewest

by Skottie Young

Middlewest is a graphic novel saga that is as strange and wonderful as it is epic. The story centers around a teenage boy named Abel and is set in the Midwestern town of Farmington. When we meet him, Abel is going through some difficult stuff that a lot of teens can probably relate to. He’s got an abusive dad, he navigates run-ins with bullies, he’s short on cash, and he’s frustrated with the monotony of his small town life.

Even though Abel’s life may sound familiar, readers will quickly discover that his story is set in an otherworldly version of the Midwest that is filled with ancient evil, dark sorcery, elements of steampunk, and even features a talking fox. When Abel is caught shoplifting and has to face his dad, he kicks off a series of events that forces him to come to terms with his own powerful, heroic, and mystical destiny. This comic is perfect for anyone with a taste for epic fantasy, realistic YA fiction, and an appreciation for gorgeous and colorful artwork.

Check out Middlewest from the library today (or get the eBook with the HOOPLA app), then prepare for the release of Book 2 in November!
