Back of Beyond: Stories of the Supernatural

by Sarah Ellis

Published by U.S. edition: Margaret K. McElderry, 1997
136 pages
ISBN: 0-689-81484-4

Age 12 and older

Some teens may be drawn to this collection because it sounds scary (it isn't) or eery (it is). But they will continue reading because of the honest human emotions that give these twelve featured stories their stamina and appeal. Sarah Ellis presents a rich and varied array of tales that range from humorous to highly dramatic. All are set in the space where reality is made more acute by the occurrence of events that can't be explained, at least in rational terms. While this makes the stories provocative and pleasingly spine tingling, their grounding in emotional experience gives them their real impact.
