Scarred for life: the scariest books from our childhood

It’s Halloween, and all we can think about are all the mild horror YA books that built character, but also shattered our little juvenile souls. We read about possessed dolls, vampire bunnies and teachers, ghouls in basements and dudes hanging from nooses – yeah, totally age-appropriate (thanks, R.L.
