A new hilarious novel from the author of The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever and Stranger Things Have Happened...
Rod's life doesn't suck. If you ask him, it's pretty awesome. He may not be popular, but he and his best friends play in a band that has a standing gig. Yeah, it's Monday night and they don't get paid, but they can turn the volume up as loud as they want. And Rod's girlfriend is hot, smart, and believes in their band -- believes in Rod. Aside from a winning lottery ticket, what more could he ask for?
Answer: A different cousin. When Rod's scheming, two-faced cousin Blake moves in for the semester, Rod tries to keep calm. Blake seems to have everyone else fooled with good manners and a suave smile, except Rod knows better. Blake is taking over his room, taking over his band, taking over his life! But Rod's not about to give up without a fight. Game on. May the best prankster win...
About the author:
Jeff Strand is the four-time Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of 30+ books, including Blister, A Bad Day For Voodoo, and Wolf Hunt. Cemetery Dance magazine said "No author working today comes close to Jeff Strand's perfect mixture of comedy and terror." He lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
In an effort to escape his family, Dylan sets out on the Appalachian trail -- but he can't escape his past -- or his secrets in this novel from the author of The Sister Pact.
Dylan Taggart is on the run. His family is trying to put him in a school for psychologically-challenged students, and he gets it -- he has issues. But a special school is a complete overreaction. And in six months, he'll be a legal adult, so Dylan decides to disappear on the Appalachian Trail until he can make his own decisions.
Dylan wanted independence, but setting out on a 2,190-mile hike by himself is more than he bargained for. And he keeps crossing paths with another teen hiker, known only as "The Ghost." This mysterious girl is also making the trek alone, and Dylan can tell she's trying to escape too. But from what? When disaster strikes, how can they trust each other if they can't face their own secrets?
