I picked this book up on a whim a few months ago because I liked the cover I d never read anything of Shusterman s before, though I believe that I have a few or at least one other of his books on my mountain of a to read shelf These stories were interesting There were some that were better than others, and some that were really good and impressed me They were all unique in some way and it was very rare for me to know where a story was going I didn t really think that any of the stories we I picked this book up on a whim a few months ago because I liked the cover I d never read anything of Shusterman s before, though I believe that I have a few or at least one other of his books on my mountain of a to read shelf These stories were interesting There were some that were better than others, and some that were really good and impressed me They were all unique in some way and it was very rare for me to know where a story was going I didn t really think that any of the stories were scary, though And I don t think that my younger self would have thought so either Some of the stories seemed as though they were going to for a humorous direction rather than a horror direction, which is fine, but not really what I expect from a collection titled Darkness Creeping But still Overall this was a good collection, and short stories are always good to fill gaps when you have a few minutes of time This is a good short story collection for middle grade readers It s not too creepy, but has an air of creep about it, and none of the stories take all that long to read So, it would be a great suggestion for a reluctant reader I also really liked that Shusterman gave a little snippet before each story explaining his inspiration for writing the story. Contrary to my expectation, this isn t a horror book yeah well, what do you expect from such cover , instead it consists of a collection of bizarre short stories Although the first story didn t impress me, I was hooked by the second story Who Do We Appreciate about a girl who had to referee a strange soccer game between two strange teams of seven years old who definitely are not what they seemed to be Other tales that I like are Soul Survivor , Screaming at the Wall my favorite, don Contrary to my expectation, this isn t a horror book yeah well, what do you expect from such cover ,

around, and they said Okay Months go by, I used to go to Borders often even just to browse and read in the aisles, and every time I d go in I d ask if my book came in because I was barely fourteen, and the employee s knew me since I was knee high to a bookshelf, they hud me well it started to border August and no Darkness Creeping.Finally We get the call.We go there.THEY HAD SOLD MY BOOK.So when

such a FUCKING WEIRD but honestly great collection of short stories That being said, let me get this out of the way I m not giving each story full reviews because my reaction to the story will speak for itself, trust me on that The last thing I d like to say is I IMPLORE YOU to read the foreword before reading this collection It seriously explains a lot about this collection and Shusterman s writing as a whole With that out of the way, here are my reactions to the twenty stories in this haunting collection Catching Cold closes book after reading What s the age demographic for this collection looks at spine label that reads Juvenile Literature Yep, that makes sense Who Do We Appreciate Not bad, pretty cool concept Soul Survivor Wooooow, that wasDARK Black Box that was a DICK MOVE, Neal Shusterman DICK MOVE But I still liked it Resting Deep How the FUCK did he get away with publishing this piece FOR KIDS Holy fuck, that was DARK Security Blacket Welp, that s gonna scar the kids And me FOR LIFE Same Time Next Year I don t understand the science, only that karma IS A BITCH The River Tour That was pretty clever, I liked it Flushie What the ACTUAL FUCK, Neal Shusterman Monkeys Tonight laughs nervously, eyes dart across the room Okaaay Screaming at the Wall Damn, that was good What a cool story Growing Pains Wow, that did not end the way I thought it would And I m glad I didn t read this when I was younger or I d be scarred for life Yaaay Alexander s Skull reads inspiration behind story, having already read Red Rider s Hood Finishes story Yep, that was better than Red Rider s Hood Connecting Flight Well, that wasinteresting And weird VERY WEIRD Ralphy Sherman s Root Canal More funny than scary, but good nonetheless An Ear For Music Pride goeth before the fall Riding the Raptor What an unexpectedly sad story dealing with very real issues Bravo, Shusterman, bravo Trash Day Be careful what you wish for, kiddos Crystalloid What the FLYING FUCKER FUCK, Shusterman Are you TRYING to scar children Because it s FUCKING WORKING, and I M AN ADULT Shadow of Doubt Fucking awesome Never read any Shusterman poetry, but I am SO DOWN for , a great ending to this collection.And that s about it I highly recommend this collection, even for adults Shusterman tackles A LOT of mature themes in this collection and holy SHIT are some of the stories dark I had a lotfun with it than I thought and I would love readof his short story collections Warning Not horror, but the tales are twisted.This was interesting As someone who writes I feel like I learned how to think deeper from reading this Not only were the author notes explaining what inspired Shusterman to write each story added to my enjoyment of this book, but many of the the stories themselves were really intriguing Sure some of the short stories were okay like Flushie and Catching Cold, and I noticed a strange isolation each character seemed to experience, but then the Warning Not horror, but

strange isolation each character seemed to experience, but then there were stories like Growing Pains, Same Time Next Year, Screaming at the Wall, and Connecting Flight that were just so interesting I didn t like every main character, and I was surprised how okay with their situation some of them were, but the ideas in the stories made reading this worth it Too bad there was no real romance, I hate to say it, but while romance irritates me I always feel like something is lacking missing when there isn t a romantic subplot, or maybe it was just the lack of relationship connection in general between many of the main characters and side characters Did I mention some of these stories were pretty messed up, because they were Yeah I m talking about Security Blanket, but there were others like Soul Survivor Then there was Monkeys Tonight, interesting idea but I really didn t like how it seemed so unexplained Alexander s Skull wasn t really explained either, but it left with a sense that someday in the future it will be for Alex at least Final Rating I really liked this because it was interesting and the author notes really added to my reading enjoyment This book was the perfect mixture of dark and creepy, giving me things to think about while also not terrifying me out of my wits and giving me additional anxiety Very strong recommend.
