Unthinkable - Shirley Duke

Publisher:  Darby Creek
Pages:  106
Source:  Purchase
Genre:  Young Adult, Horror

If you like horror, then this is the book for you.  Imagine being popular in high school for the horror stories you write.  This may not seem like much unless you are the teen writing them.  Omar Phillips posts his stories on Facebook.  His friends can’t wait to read the next story.  But something is wrong.  Suddenly things have changed and Omar is having visions that he must write down.  He can’t seem to stop his hands.  No matter where he is or what he’s doing he must stop and write the story.  Everyone loves it until his stories start coming true.  The police think he is responsible and his friends are beginning to stay away from him.  Then the strange and unpopular Goth girl at school seeks Omar out and tells him she knows what he is going through.  She insists they are alike and she can help him.  The question is, at what cost?
I really enjoyed this book.  The stories Omar wrote were very intense.  I could feel the fear all through the book.  This is an author I will definitely read again.
