Deadtime Stories: Grave Secrets
Amanda Peterson has a pet cemetery in her backyard. It's where she's buried all her family's dear departed pets, like Ralphie the hamster, Herman the goldfish, and Snitch the canary. But when Amanda and her friends set out to bury a dead squirrel, they accidentally dig up a grave that's already occupied - and not by a pet. The scary old lady who lives next door has lots of buried secrets. And she'll do anything to keep them that way...

Our customer reviews
Deadtime stories are filled with mystery, suspense and all the great stuff that makes scary stories for young readers. I really enjoyed reading Grave Secrets which is the first book of the deadtime stories series. I can't wait to share this story with my 11yr old niece as she has just started getting into these types of stories! Amanda and her friends dig up more than they bargained for when trying to bury a dead squirrel. Something or someone is haunting Amanda and with each thing that happens its making her more and more scared. He friends think she has fell off the deep end as they don't see or hear the things she is seeing. Her friend Kevin believes it has something to do with the old lady next door because he is convinced that she bites the heads of rats, and does things to make bad things happen to kids who have lost items in her yard. Amanda lost her bracelet in the old ladies yard and Kevin just knows that is what is happening. He is the real wimp of the whole group, though Laura is not far behind him. Jarrad is the braver boy of the bunch, but he is mostly all talk. He can say things are real as long as he doesn't see them, but when he sees them, well he is just as chicken as the rest. Together they make for a really fun blend of characters and fun friends. If you like reading Christopher Pike and R.L. Stine then you will enjoy Deadtime Stories: Grave Secrets.show moreby Stormi Johnson
