Three boys, Adrian, Ralph, and Sean, must work together to stop a person who is scaring Adrian’s little brother, Sam, every night. They get a dog called Socks to track down this boogeyman and tell him to stop frightening Sam. But will their plan to find this man work, and if it does, do they really have any chance at stopping his evil schemes for good?
It is always good to see a character that is willing to take risks to protect others, so I enjoyed reading this short story for how it portrays its characters. Their plan to catch the person who is scaring Sam is a bit silly, and at times not realistic. But I do enjoy seeing the effort they put into reaching their goal. There was some suspense, which was also a good thing. The ending was interesting, so I was satisfied when I finished the short story.
