Spooky middle grade isn’t just for Halloween. Neil Gaiman’s Coraline meets Stranger Things in this soon to be Fall classic.
Every thirteen years, three thirteen-year-olds disappear in the town of Eden Eld. When Eleanor and her new friends discover they are next, they must find a way to break the curse.
Soon after Eleanor moves to Eden Eld to live with her uncle and aunt, she starts seeing strange things like an old grandfather clock that appears out of nowhere and a dog that follows her. No one else can see them except for her new friends Otto and Pip. They have other things in common as well: identical birthmarks and Halloween birthdays. Determined to find out more about why they can see the strange things, they uncover the town’s secret to sacrifice three children. Can Eleanor, Otto and Pip break the curse before Halloween is over?
Expertly paced with believable characters and just enough creep to chill, Thirteens thrills until the end.
