The Nest / Kenneth Oppel

Steven’s parents just had a baby, but the baby has problems and nobody is sure if he will ever be “normal.” Steven has had to address anxiety and depression in the past, working with a therapist to learn techniques to manage his symptoms when they become too overwhelming.  At night, he has strange and scary dreams that feed his anxiety, until he starts dreaming about a wasp queen and her worker wasps who offer a solution to help fix his brother.  Steven agrees to the Queen’s offer, without realizing what it means for him and his family.  This paranormal thriller is recommended for fans of horror in 6th grade or above.
