Five top YA horror novels

One title on Dahlia Adler's list of five top Young Adult horror novels, as shared on The Barnes & Noble Book Blog:
The Girl From the Well, by Rin Chupeco

Japanese folklore meets literary horror in Chupeco’s chilling debut, following a ghostly girl who avenges murdered children. The central living, breathing human in this story is Tarquin, a mysteriously tattooed boy with literal demons who befriends the spectral Okiku. Rife with poetic language, beautiful Japanese imagery, plenty of cultural references, and the occasional incident of gore, this is horror with something for everyone.
