I love 3:15 because it is so scary that it will make your heart stop. This is the first book that I have read that has audio and video for each little scary story. Once you have read a story or two you will be hiding under ypur covers. I recomend that people that are 7 or younger or people who don't like scary things not read 3:15. The rating from Amazon was 4.5 stars!
Keep the Lights On!
