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. I didn't mean to kill my best friend. It was an accident. You have to believe me. But now, ever since I buried his body in the woods, he keeps ringing me. Using our own secret ringtone. He won't leave me alone...
