Summary

On one tragic October day, a horrible school bus accident sends two neighboring towns into a tailspin of shock, grief, and unrelenting sorrow. Jimmy Freeman and his four friends heard all of the stories and rumors about the horrendous loss of life in that violent crash. But their 10-year-old imaginations get the better of them, and now they have to go and see the cursed site for themselves. But some things are best left alone and should never be disturbed.

Great short horror

This quick adventure of a haunted school bus was the perfect fit for my road trip. The narrator was good and the story was captivating.

Solid story with a good narrator.

A good, solid story with a narrator who, with time, should become a great narrator. Well worth a listen.

Creepy and kids go hand in hand

This was so damned creepy. Think stand by me but as a creepy and scary ghost story. A tragic bus accident leads to a string of deaths and disappearances that have a truly sinister origin. It’s hard to beat sinister, vindictive ghost kids for sheer creepiness. Really great quick listen. A must for horror fans. Would love to see this as a movie. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

Binge-worthy, suspenseful and enthralling

Binge-worthy storytelling and narration at its best. Every parent, teacher and child will find this book both frightening and enthralling. The characters, young and old, were well developed, so I found myself caring about what happened to them. There were continuous suspenseful plot twists throughout the story, which I would have liked to be a bit longer. 3 hours and 39 minutes is short for an audio book and therefore left many unanswered questions. I am hoping that there will be movie version of this story.

DISCLAIMER: I was given a review copy this audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

"I don't like spiders, Mrs.Hobbs."

The anticipated pleasure of a school trip to a nature park turns dark when the school bus crashes. This first disaster heralds other strange occurances. With a plot which brings to mind Stephen King, this is a well crafted horror novella, with good characterization which holds the reader in suspense. I'm not a fan of the genre usually, but this book held me riveted throughout the full three and one half hours.
In this, the story was ably assisted by the narrator, Skyler Morgan, whose exce!lent performance helped drive the plot forward. Well paced, with good modulation and separate voicings for all the characters, his reading gave the book even greater depth of atmosphere than it already presented.

Like atmospheric horror stories? Like Stephen King? If yes, then this is the book for you. It felt so realistic, plausible, with just a touch of the weird or supernatural. I was most fortunate in being freely gifted with a complimentary copy by the rights holder, at my request. Sit back and enjoy (but not whilst riding on a bus).

Great horror book

This story follows a few young kids and their interactions with a bus crash. I liked the story line and thought it put a fun twist on a haunted bus. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone who is looking for a quick and thrilling horror novel.
