Dark Reads have short chapters and very low word counts of roughly 600 each. These short, gripping stories are punctuated on every other page with bold, two-tone illustrations, which have a graphic novel feel to grab the interest of teenagers. Dark Reads are designed to appeal to readers with a very low reading age of 6 to 7, but a high interest age of 12 to 15. A black-eyed ghost haunts the toilets in Holly's school. She appears if you look in the mirror and blink three times. Holly tries it and soon wishes she hadn't. Watch out. The black-eyed girl might be right behind you.
