2011 Agatha Award Winner (Best Children’s/Young Adult Novel)
How serious is stage fright?
Well, at the Hanging Hill Playhouse, it can kill you!
Meet Zack and Judy Jennings. Just your average ghost-seeing kid and his famous-author stepmother. Off to enjoy a relaxing summer at a theater doing a production of Curiosity Cat based on Judy’s books.
But the director has another show in mind, and that production requires a child born under a full moon. A child who might not survive opening night.
And Zack? He was born under a full moon.
Once again, Chris Grabenstein provides a generous serving of sidesplitting laughs and lie-awake-at-night chills as Zack realizes that surviving the Crossroads was just the beginning of his ghost troubles.
It’s a throwback to the kids’ matinees of yore.”
