Large Print Book
Large print edition.
After suffering a tragic loss, eleven-year-old Ollie only finds solace in books. So when she happens upon a crazed woman at the river threatening to throw a book into the water, Ollie doesn't think--she just acts, stealing the book and running away. As she begins to read the slender volume, Ollie discovers a chilling story about a girl named Beth, the two brothers who both loved her, and a peculiar deal made with "the smiling man," a sinister specter who grants your most tightly held wish, but only for the ultimate price. Ollie is captivated by the tale until her school trip the next day to Smoke Hollow, a local farm with a haunting history all its own. There she stumbles upon the graves of the very people she's been reading about. Could it be the story about the smiling man is true? When the school bus breaks down on the way home, the strange driver tells the kids, "Best get moving. At nightfall they'll come for the rest of you." Ollie and two of her classmates heed the warning. As the trio head out into the woods, the bus driver has a final piece of advice: "Avoid large places. Keep to small." And with that, a deliciously creepy and hair-raising adventure begins.
