Young Adult Horror

| E:59

While Jill is out experiencing Salem (witches!) Adam has two separate conversations with Christina and Andrea of the 3-Headed Sass Monster in which they chat about their favorite Young Adult Horror titles just in time for Halloween. Because they are basically the same person, they lead off with the same book and Adam doesn't realize this because they spoke on different days...oops. We also discuss the horror books from our childhood, chat about costumes and even provide some terrible horror movies recommendations.

Grab some candy and your masquerade mask and dive on in!
