The Creeping
Alexandra Sirowy

If you prefer a story that stands up to its name then you will love this eerie tale. Two six year old best friends, Jeanie and Stella, go into the woods pretending to slay monsters. But something awful happened and Stella was the only one to come out of the woods alive. Now, eleven years later, Stella is considered to be the lucky one. She can’t remember much about that tormenting day. Because there is such a mystery that surrounds what really happened to Jeanie this even has created an ironic popularity around Stella. She is bright, beautiful and has lots of friends. On the other hand, Stella is bitter because she is constantly dancing around her past. Her plan is to leave everything behind after graduation.

At a party on the anniversary of Jeanie’s disappearance a body is found. A killer is back targeting young girls. This girl resembled Jeanie. She had red hair and fair skin just like Jeanie. Stella later learns, from an old creepy woman who lives in the woods, that a little red haired girl had been killed when she was young too. Is someone back to get Stella and to finish what was started eleven years ago or will Stella and her friends solve the mystery once and for all so they can go on with their lives?

Author Alexandra Sirowy has done an excellent job weaving a story that feels truly believable. The backstory of the characters adds to the creep factor and eerie feeling surround the town and the main character. A fast paced page turner is what young readers will find here. Vivid imagery lead the reader on a journey of surprise twists and turns as the story unfolds. Parents and teachers will approve of this exhilarating read.
