Wicked Cruel

Rich Wallace

Urban legends, those stories told by "my friend's barber's cousin in Chicago," are never quite reliable, yet they can be fascinating. These three separate short stories, all set in the same New Hampshire town, explore the truth behind the tall tales. A bullied boy moves away and dies from a brain injury, yet he appears in a music video after his death. A team of horses drowns in a flood, yet on certain rainy nights they are seen running free. A young farm boy communicates with another child after he has died. Each story is well-crafted and strangely spooky, perfect for those who love ghost stories. Ages 9-11
