Publisher's Summary

How serious is stage fright? At the Hanging Hill Playhouse, it can kill you.

After narrowly escaping a malevolent spirit in The Crossroads, Zack and Judy are hoping to relax during the rehearsals for a show based on Judy's best-selling children's books. Little do they know that the director is planning to raise a horde of evil specters from the dead, and to accomplish this, he needs a human sacrifice...and Zack fits the bill perfectly.

This second book featuring the intrepid Zack and his stepmother, Judy, is full of the same humorous and spine-tingling storytelling that has made Chris Grabenstein a fast favorite with young and old alike.

What the Critics Say

"All in all, this successor to The Crossroads is a successful stand-alone. The story line is hauntingly delicious as the fully fleshed-out creepiness comes tempered with humor. It's a throwback to the kids' matinees of yore." (School Library Journal)

    "Wonderful Story, Terrific Narrator!"

    I bought this because my family loved the first book in this series (THE CROSSROADS) by the same author/narrator team. We all LOVED it! I think my kids (boy 9, girl 11) liked this one even more because it was so action packed. It takes place in a haunted theatre and it is full of great surprises. The narrator did an amazing job bringing these characters to life! There are many characters in the story & several of them are men (JJ Myers is female) and each character was very clear and different from the others which really helped us follow the story. This is a great listen for the whole family. I hope there will be more from this author/narrator team.

    "Differences"

    I have greatly enjoyed many of Grabenstein's works. It seems, to me, this would be an interesting story for maybe 10-14 year olds. I hate to disagree with the other reviewer, but found the narration to be torturous. I will be sure not to purchase books with this same narrator again. Most characters sound like the narrator is breathing helium. I was surprised it was published like this. I wish readers could give two ratings on the books purchased, one for the story and another for the reading.
