  • Letting Kori Henderson drive me anywhere was mistake enough.

  • That girlโ€™s braids were done so tight it messed with her brain.

  • Sure it was his sister, Kori, who invited all of us twelve-year-olds to join her friends on that spook hunt, and, yes, it was my best friend, Jessica, who actually convinced me to get in the van, but Justin Henderson was always behind all supernatural weirdness.

  • He couldnโ€™t help it.

  • The hair on my arms stood on end just thinking about some old man with a bucket and a gun that Justin described as a local ghost legend.

  • How did I let Jessica bribe me with a Slurpee?

  • Tiffany

    No amount of sugar could compensate for the way that fear was digging tiny holes in my stomach.

  • I couldnโ€™t even watch Scooby Doo by myself.

    Kori said, whipping the car off to the side of the road.

  • We all snapped forward as she hit the brakes.

  • She gave a hoot then hopped out into the darkness.
