Book Review: Doctor sleep

Freedom Chevalier reviews Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. For my 13th birthday, my brother gave me his well-worn copy of The Shining by Stephen King. I stayed up all night to read it. Then I stayed up every night for the next week, too afraid to go to sleep. I kept thinking Mrs. Massey was […]
