    One book. Five curious incidents. Pages of horror and a riveting read. If you like to read bone-chilling and peculiar graphic novels, Mark Fearing’s “Welcome to Feral: Little Town. Big Scares!” will entice you with every chapter! Follow along with Freya, the investigative and conspirative narrator, as she shares all the spooky happenings in Feral. Or, at least, of what she uncovers to be spooky happenings. The horror-themed book contains five short stories, from tales of abandoned ice cream trucks, deep in the middle of a winding woods, to a suspicious troop leader with mysterious habits that leave his terrified troop training for battle. Freya’s nail-biting ideas are bound to keep you on the edge of your seats! Follow along with Freya’s map of Feral covered in posted notes and pushpin, while Freya uses factual details and her interrogative imagination to fill in the blanks of the unusual happenings in Feral, especially surrounding missing kids. Mark Fearing does a spook-tascular job in creating unsettling atmospheres and creative plot twists. I would recommend this book series for ages 10-13.
