Quick spooky read with a lot of mysteries. The passwords for Sarah's online videos made a great companion to Ryan's journal and I liked that. ( )

This was a creepy, good read. It reminds me of the tv series I watched as a child and enjoyed (Are You Afraid of The Dark, Tales from the Crypt, Ghostwriter, and Goosebumps.) I really enjoyed the hybrid style of writing and video to get the story. I enjoyed the interactiveness of going to my computer after reading the journal and watching videos. This story mode made me feel like I was an additional character in the world-building that found Ryan's journal and needed to know what happened at the Dredge. I would recommend this family-friendly and more creepy than scary story to anyone who enjoys a fun mystery with vanilla-horror elements. ( )

Great stuff! Your typical YA ghost story, but video integration/easter eggs was well done. ( )
