Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Young Adult

Coraline is an explorer. Her parents work at home so can't give her their full attention, which means she needs to find other ways to occupy her time. She explores the grounds of her home. One day she decides to open up every single door in her building and comes across one that leads to brick.

The next time Coraline opens this door, it leads to a hallway. Coraline follows it and finds her mom and dad... except something isn't quite the same about them. Coraline must challenge her "other mother" and fight to get back to her real parents.

This book was an easy read and was entertaining, but was just plain creepy. This would scare the crap out of me if I was a 12 year old.

First Line: "Coraline discovered the door a little while after they moved into the house."
