The Inn Between
The “The Inn Between” by Marina Cohen didn’t take us very long to read, but it’s certainly left a lasting impression. This mysterious read reminds of an episode of R.L. Stine’s “The Haunting Hour” or the old Nick series “Are You Afraid of the Dark”. It’s the perfect bite-sized taste of spooks and thrills that really builds up to it’s powerful ending.
For a pretty short read (just over 200 pages), it packs a surprising amount of depth. There’s quite a lot of friendship, creepy moments, twists and turns, and even a few illustrations (by Sarah Watts) all wrapped up into this little book. (Also that cover. OMG. Who could not want to pick up this book after seeing that fantastic cover?!)
Things haven’t exactly been going great for Quinn recently. She got caught cheating on a Spanish assignment and her sister Emma disappeared one day after school. It’s all weighing on Quinn’s mind while on this road trip, but she’s trying to make the best of her final days with her best friend. When they get tired on the road, they decide to spend the night at the Inn Between.
