A Frighteningly Funny
Middle Grade Adventure
Is Coming!!
Do you prefer the taste of red?
Do you sleep under your bed?
Do you read people's thoughts?
Do you think you are a vampire?

Svetlana Grimm does!  And it's
making her transition to sixth grade at
Sunny Hill Middle School all the more
difficult.  After all, what can someone
with her extrasensory powers possibly
have in common with a classroom full
of jellybean eaters?

But things get a lot more interesting
when Svetlana's beautiful science
teacher, Ms. Larch, starts reading
thoughts.  What could it mean?  
Svetlana's thrilled to have found
another of her "kind" --until strange
accidents begin happening.  Now
menace looms at every turn and her
classmates are mysteriously
vanishing.  Is some dark force about to
turn Sunny Hill Middle School into a
giant kid buffet?

Big trouble is brewing!  And if Svetlana
and Ms. Larch aren't allies...that
means the world is about to become a

dangerous place.
