AMERICAN GHOUL: Teen Angst + Dead for Dinner = Campy 1970s Horror
As the mom of a teenage dude, I spent a lot of time cajoling my son to read. Walt Morton's American Ghoul would have made it a lot easier. This is a well-written tale about a 17-year-old guy whose mortifying family secret (they eat human corpses) comes to light with terrible consequences.
This is well-written YA horror with a campy 1970s setting that makes it fun for the not-so-YA readers too.
