People of the Tower by Billie Sue Mosiman

Firstly, I love, love, LOVE the cover (by Jeffrey Kosh) how spooky is that!

It actually sets the mood for this short story really well. Ketty & Max are on the road travelling to visit her Mum when they decide, well Ketty decides and Max acquises, to the scenic route, however this soon gets them lost.

After two long days traveling and two spooky nights in horrid motels with only dorritos for dinner, nightmares which fuel a lack of sleep, stinky covers and bed bugs, one of their nightmares come true.

Totally loved the ending! what a surprise! and watch out for the frog on the anthill (made me snort!)
