King for the younger generation
I enjoyed this short story from Mr. King, it would be a great book for a young reader to start them out.

reading to sleep, because you won't be able to! A girl separated from her family gets lost in the woods. She has only her walkman and the Red Sox to keep her sanity, while the forest holds a lurking shadow, something shapeless and unknown. Can she survive??
This book was not really gory, as horror stories normally go, but I would say that it still has a good plot line and the main character is someone so normal she could be your sister, or a friend, or maybe even you. This book is worth the effort to read.

I bought this book because it was about the Appalachian Trail, but liked it because King wrote such a tantalizing tale. A young girl gets lost off the Appalachian Trail, makes all the mistakes lost people should not make, but by golly is one tough little cookie, though descending life's path steadily and quickly enough. King really seemed to be in the mind of a desperately lost, unprepared hiker in the Maine wilderness. It was uncanny. This is the only King book I've read, but it makes me wonder if I should be trying some of his others.
