Fright Train was closer in story style and overall fear factor to The Dollmaker and gets a slight edge on the LIKE meter for that fact alone. All three books have earned the same ranking, and will remain as such.
I feel that Verstraete has a clear construction of a setting for her stories, with the town of Weirdville, and her characters all fit into the dramatic setting. Playing on the innate fears that young people have, is a subject that can work well, or fail miserably and I think that Fright Train was right on target... not too scary, but just enough to make you squirm.

The main character of this story is Charlie. His mother drops him off at the train station to catch a train to his Grandmother’s house in Weirdville. The wait is long and cold. He’s warned not to get on the train by a stranger who offers him a ride. But Charlie knows not to talk to strangers or ride with them.
When the train arrives he gets on. His ride is very scary. He meets a woman with pale skin, a giant conductor and two kids. The conductor doesn’t like his ticket and chases him through the train. Eventually he ends up meeting Mrs. Weird, a very scary bad woman who wants to kill him. Will Charlie get away? Will he ever see his Grandma?
This was a good and scary story. I would tell my friends that it was perfect….. Alyssa age 9.
This was a wonderful story I shared with my grand daughters. As you can see she really enjoyed the story. It was well written and very age appropriate. I would highly recommend it to other parents.
This story was provided to me for an honest review.
I really enjoyed reading the Acknowledgements in this book. It was interesting to learn who inspired the author to write this book and other horror stories. Without these authors she would not be where she is today. I liked how she thanked Noelle Griffin the talented artist whom made the artistic covers for the books.
To me as a reader I enjoy reading about the author. I loved how Majanka Verstrate begged her Mom to teach her how to read while she was still in Kindergarten. Very impressive for a little girl to have the passion and drive to read at such a young age.
Fascinating, that Majanka wrote her first story when she was only 7 years old.
Fright Train is part 3 of the Weirdville series. I however have not read the first two books. Therefore, can’t compare them to the other books. However, that being said you can read it as a stand alone book as I have.
This book focuses on Charlie. He is dropped off at the train station by his parents so that he may go visit his Grandmother. However, some very strange things happen to him when approached by a stranger on the train.
Charlie is going to visit his Grandma in Weirdville and his mom drops him off at the train station. After his train is delayed and being out in the cold for a while a lady comes over to check on him, but just then the train to Weirdville shows up. This train is pretty old fashioned and run down and has a weird vibe. The lady warns Charlie not to get on it, but he knows he has to in order to get to his grandmother. Everything turns pretty strange for Charlie after that though.
I know I'm not the intended age group for this book, but I think that it was really well written and had a great story. I loved it!
