P.J. Night''s latest installment in the spooky and spectacular Creepover series for middle-grade girls is a level 5 on the Creep-o-Meter.
In Is She For Real?, Bethany has just moved to Old Warwick, a quaint old town that is said to be haunted by the ghost of Lady Warwick. Lady Warwick lived centuries ago and died of a broken heart…but her grave was found empty shortly after her death. Legend says that Lady Warwick was buried alive and still roams Old Warwick today in search of her lost love. Bethany hears all about the legend from her new friends and thinks it’s all pretty corny—until really strange things start happening to her. With a ring on her finger that looks just like the one Lady Warwick wore, and a new boyfriend with chilling similarities to Lady Warwick’s lost love, Bethany’s friends have to wonder: Is real life imitating legend...or becoming legend?
This tale is a level 5 on the Creep-o-Meter. Super scary!
About the Author
A lifelong night owl, P. J. Night often works furiously into the wee hours of the morning, writing down spooky tales and dreaming up new stories of the supernatural and otherworldly. Although P. J.’s whereabouts are unknown at this time, we suspect the author lives in a drafty, old mansion where the floorboards creak when no one is there and the flickering candlelight creates shadows that creep along the walls. We truly wish we could tell you more, but we’ve been sworn to keep P. J.’s identity a secret…and it’s a secret we will take to our graves!
