After discovering Dan Poblocki, I wanted to read more of his books to expand the scary book section of my library. While I really enjoyed The Ghost of Graylock, I just could not get into The Nightmarys and found myself skipping through the last hundred pages to read the ending. If it felt too long and boring for me, a middle school student would abandon it far earlier than I did.
It's a shame, because the title and cover are amazing, but there were too many hallucinations and dreams, and the mystery was convoluted. Not for me.
