    A hungry little caterpillar eats his way through a varied and very large quantity of food until, full at last, he forms a cocoon around himself and goes to sleep.

    Gemma is the story of a child abduction written from two widely divergent points of view: 12 year-old Gemma and Hazen Wook, the 36-year-old man who abducts her. Hazen is a violent pedophile, a sexual obsessive, and Tilly does not white-wash or sanitize his thoughts in any way. This book is scary and not for the faint of heart.

    Wow! All the 5 star reviews are dead on. If you can't handle detailed stories about child abuse do not get this one. However if you can.... This story is AMAZING! My heart actually ached for Gemma at times, no kidding I had cheast pains. Great story and amazing reader.

    What made the experience of listening to Goosebumps HorrorLand, Book 1 the most enjoyable?

    My children ages 3 -11 ask to listen every time we get in the car. Makes the long car ride fun. It scared them and they loved it :)

    Story
    (1950)

    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Kathleen says: "A truly memorable read"
    "Soooo Good!!"
    Overall

    I know I shouldn't let my daughter listen... but she loved Jacks voice (she is five and has a brother named Jack). I caught her listening while I was doing the dishes and I didn't realize it. I don't think she understands the whole story... but it is kinda nice to hear her ask questions. Anytime I listen she is in there with me. There was a few bits I turned off and said we will listen later... then listened when I knew I was alone. Anyways... amazing book!!! And the little guy could be annoying if you are not used to kids... but I have three under five so what is one more little voice in the house. Jack fits right in.

    Story
    (164)

    Thirteen-year-old Kyra has grown up in an isolated polygamous community without questioning her father's three wives and her 20 brothers and sisters. Or at least without questioning them much - if you don't count her secret visits to the Mobile Library on Wheels to read forbidden books, or her meetings with the boy she hopes to choose for herself instead of having a man chosen for her.

    Kim says: "Riveting Story - Amazing Narration"
    "Want More!!!"
    Overall

    I love this book and they way it was written. I love the characters... and I love Jenna who read it. However I did not like the way it was ended... clever yes... I just needed MORE!!! That is the only reason for not giving it five stars.

    Life sucks when your friends are pissed at you. Just ask Zoey Redbird. In one week she has gone from having three boyfriends to having none, and from having a close group of friends who trusted and supported her to being an outcast. Speaking of friends, the only two Zoey has left are undead and unMarked. And Neferet has declared war on humans, which Zoey knows in her heart is wrong.

    Overall

    Like many people say on other sites this won't win an award for best writing.... however it does keep you interested if you like the character Zoey. It took me all the way to the second part of the story to get used to the new narrator. I hated her at first... now she is growing on me. Not much to say except I like it enough I will finish the series.
