Quickie Review: Crystal and Bone (Book One of the October Girls) by Scott Nicholson

Crystal & Bone (October Girls, #1)Crystal & Bone by Scott Nicholson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As Halloween approaches, Crystal Aldridge is set to inherit the job of protecting the world from the things that can come through the orifice. Only problem is that Crystal has no interest in growing into that role. Instead, she studies for her GED, works at the video store, and dreams of a life somewhere far from where she is.

Her best friend Bonnie, aka Bone, is dead and comes back through the orifice from time to time to visit Crystal. Crystal isn't supposed to consort with the dead. And it looks like other things might be able to come through too.

Things become complicated when a guy named Dempsey comes to town with visions of filming a B-movie. Things go from bad to worse as he runs around town talking to the teens and spreading the word about his other films.

This is a very humorous story. It's told with a lot of sarcasm and one-liners. It's still horror, but it's funny. For me, that was the best part of the book.

I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. It's a fun YA horror story along the lines of a B-movie with lots of humor. And while it can be read anytime, it makes a perfect October read.
