Haunt: Dead Scared

About The Book

From the author of the bestselling Wereworld series comes the first book in a comical and supernatural new series featuring a young boy who turns from a geeky teen into a ghost—just as life is beginning to get interesting.

When Will finds himself in hospital, but unable to make anyone see or hear him, he realizes that he never made it home from his first kiss with the school hottie. Knocked off his bike in a traffic accident, Will is now officially dead—and a ghost. But somehow his best mate, Dougie, can still see him, and, what’s more, increasingly Will seems bound to Dougie, going only where Dougie goes. Once they’ve exhausted all the comic possibilities of being invisible, they set about unraveling the mystery of Will’s predicament. Does it have something to do with that kiss, or the driver of the hit-and-run car accident that killed him? Maybe they will find an answer by investigating the rumor that there is an unhappy spirit haunting the school grounds, and if so, why? What they discover is a long-buried mystery, which continues to linger right into the present…
