In this frightfully funny novel by L.M. Falcone, somebody has moved into the creepy, abandoned cottage in the cemetery across the road from Will Trenom's house in small, sleepy Port Elgin. Will is on a perfectly normal errand on a perfectly normal day when he knocks on the cottage door. Suddenly, a crazy sumo wrestler with gold hoop earrings is chasing him through the cemetery while a strange man with long blond hair -- who calls himself the devil's nephew -- laughs. Then, late that night, Will hears crying in the cemetery and sees a ghostly old woman hovering above the gates. What kind of neighbors are these? What the devil is going on?
Those willing to jump into this bizarre yet engaging showdown will be rewarded with a well-told and thoughtful story about the ambiguity behind a good versus evil showdown.
This light-hearted roller coaster ride through the supernatural will provide enough action, twists, and scary situations to keep students interested from the first page to the last.
