  1. Hello,
    I teach reading at Neenah High School in Neenah, Wisconsin, US. One of my students just finished Chill and he loved it! He is wondering if any of this story is based on fact. Hope to hear from you soon!
    Thank you,
    Teri Landry

    1. Dear Teri,

      Thank you for taking the time to write! I’m sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you, I haven’t been checking in at my site as often as I should and I just received your comment now. My sincerest apologies. In regards to your question, while some of the book was inspired by actual events, experiences and people, the story itself isn’t factual.

      Thank you again and I really am sorry for the late delay, I will do better in the future.

      All my best,
