Description

A deep, raspy voice whispered, “The midnight curse has been passed on to you!”

Thus begins a frightfully wacky adventure that will have young readers turning every page in spine-tingling anticipation. Lacey and her twin brother, Charlie, are visiting England to find out if they inherited anything from their reclusive uncle Jonathan, but before long, Charlie realizes he might not have inherited anything but the family curse. It's a bad one --- he'll shrivel up and die unless someone ventures to the attic to face a malevolent spirit.

Curse removal is a complicated game involving a gothic cast of shifty characters. The twins sure have stirred things up, and the clock is ticking on Charlie's curse. Can they finish what they started?

Editorial Reviews

... offer this one to tweens who like to be amused while experiencing a vicarious scare.

— Voice of Youth Advocates

Thrills and laughs are carefully balanced in the fourth comic horror novel from L.M. Falcone.

— Quill & Quire

This is an amazingly fast-paced story, and amusing to boot. Reluctant readers will especially appreciate how quickly this moves while enjoying every moan and groan.
