Combine Stranger Things, The Twilight Zone, and the ‘Goosebumps’ books, then throw in a dash of life lessons and genuine literary thematics, and you get some idea of what to expect with ‘Twisted’. Each story presents a new set of characters caught in a situation well beyond the boundaries of everyday life, and you, the reader, have the distinct pleasure of watching them do their level best to get out of it!
Employing story ideas collected over a period of more than thirty years, the ‘Twisted’ series has been carefully crafted to appeal not only to enthusiastic teens and tweens but also hi-lo ‘reluctant readers’ who normally wouldn’t pick up a book if their life depended on it. To that end, the ‘Twisted’ books have enjoyed tremendous success, with literally hundreds of librarians already stating that the ‘Twisted’ stories were among the first that their reluctants not only took home and read from cover to cover, but then came back for the rest!
