  5. Clowns and near white hair, not a good combination. Kind of spooky, though I like the cover.

  11. Clowns give me the creeps. But your teaser has me curious and I've been meaning to try a book by Laura Lam:)

  12. LOL I'd rather take my chances with vampires over clowns any day of the week. Have you ever seen Killer Klowns from Outer Space? Jeepers! Interesting Friday 56. Thanks for hosting!

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people.
