Point Horror Recaps: Recap #90: The Forbidden Game #1: The Hunter by LJ Smith (Donna on 23 Sep 2017)

Funhouse by Diane HohPoint Horror Recaps: Recap #1: Funhouse by Diane Hoh (Dove on 8 Jan 2013)
Dove recaps Funhouse by Diane Hoh, wherein the lead character isn't a wet rag with the intelligence of rotten milk, the setting is pretty cool, and Gina, the BFF, rocks. Sadly, this will be the last time we enjoy such luxuries. Bit of a shame this is the case on recap #1.
