I have a new one to add which I finished a couple months ago but KNOW it will stay with me for a long, long time.

UNWIND by Neal Shusterman

If you have read it already, then you know that one chapter that I will never forget.  Such a thought-provoking story.

Let me add another unforgettable book that I finished this week: The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson. It has everything -- love, despair, redemption and more -- all to the nth degree. Wow! As soon as I finished it, I went back to the beginning ...

Has anyone got any of their own books/stories that have haunted them for a period time?  Cos I have a few...and they weren't meant to be terrifying! :skull :ahh
