In the great American tradition of the spooky campfire tale, New York Times bestselling author E.G.Foley presents 50 States of Fear, a frightful-but-funny paranormal series for kids, set in all 50 States! From Civil War ghosts in Alabama to weird Wyoming cowboy legends, there’s always something to scream about in Ahhhh!-merica.
Welcome to Alabama,y’all! By day—sunshine and Southern hospitality. But by night, the ghosts of the Old South come alive…
Four nights in a haunted mansion? When 12-year-old Colin Donovan leaves New York with his Mom and sister on a road trip to visit his sweet ol’ Southern grandma, he doesn’t expect to encounter—ghosts! Unfortunately, Grandma’s new apartment lies within the walls of Sycamore Hall, a mysterious old plantation house shrouded in local lore.
That night, Colin hears chilling spectral voices, comes face-to-face with a phantom—and gets scared nearly out of his wits! But nobody messes with his grandma. So, to protect her, the mild-mannered seventh-grader turns ghost hunter, vowing to find out who or what is haunting the place. Some of the restless spirits he faces still hold antique grudges. And none of them want their home invaded by a kid in a Yankees t-shirt!
