    Location: http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=43.8006736&lon=-111.88074260000002&site=all&smap=1&searchresult=Rexburg%2C%20ID%2083440%2C%20USA#.UxeTLfldWBI

    Josh Allen checks under his bed before switching off the light each night. You'll soon see why when you hear him talk about his new book Out to Get You. Reviewers have called it "tasty, bite-sized, bizarreness for brave preteens." 

    Get ready for a collection of thirteen short stories that will chill your bones, tingle your spine, and scare your pants off. Debut author Josh Allen masterfully concocts horror in the most innocent places, like R.L. Stine meets a modern Edgar Allan Poe. A stray kitten turns into a threatening follower. The street sign down the block starts taunting you. Even your own shadow is out to get you! Spooky things love hiding in plain sight.

    The everyday world is full of sinister secrets and these page-turning stories show that there's darkness even where you least expect it. "Is normal the real myth in this wondrously eerie world?” asks Kirkus Reviews “. . . Tasty, bite-sized bizarreness for brave preteens."

    From former Newberry winners to library suppliers, everyone with an advance copy is raving about this new release. Come and see why!
