From master horror writer Rin Chupeco comes the nightmarish first novel in an all-new middle-grade horror series inspired by Nickelodeon’s hit TV classic, Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Everyone in Southridge knows about the legend of the Gravemother. They know how to leave offerings by the abandoned house she was supposedly murdered in to pacify her. They know better than to trespass on her property. But not everyone believes in the tale—especially not 14-year-old Rhett, who lives around the corner from the old mansion.

Then it’s announced that the Gravemother’s place is one of several to be demolished to give way for new townhouses. When disaster strikes the construction site and strange sightings of a woman in white begin haunting the neighbors, Rhett must figure out how to put the ghost permanently to rest before it’s too late.

Perfect for fans of the Five Nights at Freddy’s series, these terror-inducing tales—told by members of an all-new Midnight Society—are sure to keep readers up at night.


"A campfire tale with a memorably macabre ghost. Chupeco assembles a new Midnight Society to gather around the campfire for this tie-in to the TV series Are You Afraid of the Dark? and cleverly fashions a spooky yarn with themes that apply directly to the frame story."
