Review: Unthinkable

Title: Unthinkable
Series: No
Genre: Young Adult-Thriller/Horror
Author: Shirley Duke
Publisher: Lerner Classroom
Release Date: October 1, 2010
Book: Netgalley

"Omar Phillips is Bridgewater High's favorite local teen author. His Facebook fans can't wait for his next horror story. But lately Omar's imagination has turned against him. Horrifying visions of death and destruction come over him with wide-screen intensity. The only way to stop the visions is to write them down. Until they start coming true... Enter Sophie Minax, the mysterious Goth girl who's been following Omar at school. "I'm one of you," Sophie says. She tells Omar how to end the visions but the only thing worse than Sophie's cure may be what happens if he ignores it."

What if every story you wrote down came true? If you ask me that is pretty creepy but I love this plot. Not only was it unique but I love that  the main character was boy who was a  writer. His stories are creepy and very detailing. For a young writer, he has some great potential.

The plot was good. Very good. I love how he was compelled to write as if he couldn't control it. He needed to write, to get it out. He had no idea that they will come true. I love how the plot twist with the new character Sophie. The twists and turn in the plot were creepy and messed up. I would have never thought it to be that way.

My only gripe about this book is that it is short. Its only 116 pages so I finished this real fast. I was hoping to learn more about Omar and the wonderful creepy stories he writes. Unthinkable is a great, creepy book. The only thing I can compare it to is The Secret Window but with a teen writer. Great creepy stories that makes you wonder how in the world did they ever come to life?

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!
