...nothing beats the socks off a muggy evening made for gators and things that go bump in the night, like "A Scary Good Book," from a writer who knows how to keep 'em turning the pages ;)
Anita Laydon Miller, book columnist for the Colorado Springs Gazette, and the author of "Earthling Hero," has on this day, the 8th of the 8th, released her latest work, "A Scary Good Book."
...twelve-year old Hannah Stone tells everyone she's "okay," but that's a total lie. Two years ago her dad was killed by a hit-and-run driver. The detective in charge of the case never found the driver, but he somehow managed to get Hannah's mom to fall in love with him. The Jerk. And speaking of love, Hannah's developed a major crush on Ollie Ortega-he's her best friend and the only one she can talk to-a crush on Ollie is so not a good idea.
Also not a good idea? Searching for a missing person with no help from the police. But that's exactly what Hannah does when she finds messages in library books-underlined words that point her in the direction of someone who needs her.
And suddenly, Hannah's even further from okay. She breaks into a library, gets caught in a kidnapper's web, and is stalked by her dad's killer, all in an effort to save a life...but can she save herself too?
