Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
Adapted By: Kate McMullan


Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is the tale of a charitable doctor who has been working on a top-secret experiment for years. Dr. Jekyll has always believed that a person is actually a composition of two entirely separate people (the person who is good and kind and the person who is mean and evil), and he's determined to prove it. After years of toiling, Dr. Jekyll finally concocts a drug that is able to separate the two people within him - Dr. Jekyll and his alter ego, the evil Mr. Hyde.


The story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has been altered and shortened to make it an easier read, but all the great scary elements are still a part of this great spooky classic. If you've never heard the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story, or are looking for something a bit scary to sink your teeth into, then definitely grab a copy of this book.

The Phantom of the Opera

Author: Gaston Leroux
Adapted By: Kate McMullan


The Phantom of the Opera follows the story of Eric, a young boy who was born looking more like a skeleton than an actual boy. When he receives nothing but abuse and hatred from his parents, young Eric decides to run away, quickly finding himself part of a freak show in a local fair.

From there, Eric learns to use his freakiness to his advantage. You follow him from freak show to freak show and he just gets scarier and scarier. You don't have to have seen the Broadway show to enjoy the Phantom of the Opera book. The story is fast-paced and scary all the way through. You might want to keep a flashlight by your bed after this one though, cuz it'll have you looking for the Phantom in your closet before you crawl into bed at night!

Say you're in canada and you meet someone all the way in asia. Online dating is great in that way. It can be bad because sometimes they could be fake, or you may never be able to actually see them. Some people who online date have met each other and even got married, living amazing lives. People who online date sk_pe and message/comfort each other in all sorts of different ways. Though they can't actually be there for them, their words are good enough to place a smile on their face. There is nothing good about it. You don't know anything about the person. They could be lying about everything. Also if you decide to meet up somewhere, you could find out that the person is dangerous and then they could hurt you. Well that is your opinion. I think it is  great thing. Especially for someone like me who can't really speak to people outside the internet.

    How to go to sleep: Use a sleepmask and earplugs, (don't worry if they fall out in the night) and keep a night light near your bed that isn't LED, just normal light. If your parents room is by yours, ask them to keep their light on until you go to sleep. Hope this helps!

Even an interesting character will sound dull if you can't translate them to paper well. Yes, they can. cx However, the type of hat was not clarified and so it made the sentence sound awkward. That's exactly my point, thank you.
