Nine Ways to Die is a young adult novella by Jordan Elizabeth which is perfect for readers who love a good horror story. Jan has just moved to a new town, and she’s bored out of her mind. Summer is supposed to be fun, but she has nothing to do except sit around with a few other teenagers. With her sister in the hospital, she never sees her parents. Now that she thinks about it, she doesn’t see very many other people at all. Her friends seem to enjoy the monotony of the summer, but Jan wants something more exciting. She also has a few questions that no one can answer: what’s in the woods? And why did her boyfriend almost freak out when she wanted to go inside the cemetery?
Jordan Elizabeth portrayed a wonderful setting that was familiar and easy to imagine – summertime in a lazy, dusty town. We all look forward to having a bit of a break during the summer, but as Jan was quick to learn, sometimes there can be too much of a good thing. Suddenly there is a fine line between relaxation and creepiness, which I didn’t expect at all, but I absolutely loved. I also loved how the characters are believable and realistic, with just a little hint of something that seems suspicious. This heightened the overall mystery and suspense of the chilling tale. It is certainly possible to read Nine Ways to Die in a single sitting, but I found myself wishing that it could have lasted longer.
