The Devouring: Sorry Night by Simon Holt - NO

Holt, Simon The Devouring: Sorry Night, 231 p. Little, Brown and Company, September 2008.


Reggie reads what she thinks are rambling mumblings of a crazy person and dares to not follow the advice contained within. Horror and evil possession ensues and Reggie is stalked by danger in the guise of someone she loves. Her best friend Aaron and, oddly, her boss Eben, may be able to help her unlock the mystery of Sorry Night and uncover a much deeper problem.

 While the premise is interesting, the graphic violence factor is pretty high. There are no “f’s”, but there are about 50 other assorted swears. This one takes the horror genre and brings it to teens, but I would leave it to the public libraries.
