1) COMPELLING MAIN CHARACTER. Erasmo Cruz’s mother ran away. His father was a heroin junkie who died of an overdose. He’s from the wrong side of the tracks and can’t afford his grandma’s cancer treatments, let alone college. But he’s also a master of the occult. This is a deep and deeply interesting character. 2) FEAR STREET FOR A DIVERSE AMERICA. There has not been a single piece of commercially meaningful young-adult horror built around a Hispanic character. This novel contains exorcisms, future-seers, and ghosts — like Fear Street, it’s a tour of the supernatural for young people. But all of that is realized inside an environment that is diverse and filled with real economic privation. 3) BOOK WITHIN A BOOK. Erasmo’s studies in the supernatural focus around a specific guide that plays a very significant role in the book, giving it an almost semi-epistolary feel. The book is filled with a mix of real and fake supernatural events, creating additional layers of intrigue for young readers.
