The Dead End by Mimi McCoy - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Casey is looking forward to the summer break. She and her best friend Jillian have made a lot of plans to make their summer the best one ever. What Casey doesn’t know is that her parents have bought a house in a small town and that they’ll be fixing it up during the summer. Casey storms off to her room and keeps sulking about it. When they pull up at the house, it’s even worse than Casey thought it would be. The house has no electrical power, no landline and she has no reception on her cell either. As soon as Casey enters the house she feels that something is not right. She hears inexplicable noises, things are moving on their own and she has vivid dreams every night. She even finds a message on a dusty mirror that says ‘Get Out’. Who is this someone that clearly doesn’t like the new home-owners?

Casey gets scared easily and likes to stay on the safe side. She feels watched all the time and she has no idea how to deal with a possible ghost. In the attic she finds a diary and she’s immediately drawn in by the stories of a young girl named Millie who once lived in the house. The writing suddenly stops and Casey tries to find people in town who might have known what happened to Millie. She finds out that the truth about why Millie’s writing stopped is truly horrifying. Is Millie the ghost she keeps hearing?

The Dead End is a chilling story about a haunted house. I've always liked to read creepy stories and I absolutely loved the thrill of The Dead End. I think secluded houses in the woods are so scary and I would never buy one, let alone live in one. Casey is very easy to connect with, even though this story is written for teenagers I still felt close to her and I read The Dead End in one sitting. The Dead End is the first book in the Poison Apple series and I'm certain that I'll be reading every single one of these amazing stories.

Advice

If you’re looking for a creepy story about a haunted house that is age appropriate for teenagers, The Dead End would be a perfect choice.

  1. Horror has always been my favorite genre. Even when I was a young girl. My favorite is Salem's Lot by Stephen King. It still scares me!

  2. Edgar Allen Poe stories are my favourite spooky tales. The Black Cat, The Tell Tale Heart, and The Masque of the Red Death are some of my favourites. He was a fascinating and amazing writer. Even the circumstances around his own death were eerie and mysterious.

  11. It by Stephen King. That book looks like a satisfying read. Dark Water, I love that movie until the end. The Ring, same I love that movie. MAMA is a great movie. Orphan, Case 39, Silent Hill. Anything with a kid main character.

  14. I'm not a huge fan of scary stories. I did 'enjoy' The Caller by Chris Carter in that it was so grisly I couldn't put it down.
