If somehow you don't know already, I am trying to write a due South Choose Your Own Adventure book. A surprising number of the "you fail" endings in these books are a bit lethal.

I found a list of endings from the most notorious COYA book of them all.

Yes, I meant it, notorious.

Then the silence is broken by your screams as knives appear out of nowhere and bury themselves in your backs.


That ending was also illustrated.

It's up there with all the horrifying disturbing stories kids write quite happily.

Last week, I had a girl who told me there were monsters under the bed that crawl out from under the bed and steal your eyeballs because they haven't got any.
  • Yeah, "the most notorious CYOA book of them all" -- as a librarian at a public library I've had to deal with a lot of censorship challenges, and that's one of the books that was a target of censors.

    Also, when I followed that link and found the big list of CYOA books I printed out the list. I think you have infected me with CYOA fever. *trembles at the herd of dS CYOA plotbunnies heading for my bunny hutch*
