Zach, Poppy and Alice have been friends for ever. They love playing with their action figure toys, imagining a magical world of adventure and heroism. But disaster strikes when, without warning, Zach’s father throws out all his toys, declaring he’s too old for them. Zach is furious, confused and embarrassed, deciding that the only way to cope is to stop playing . . . and stop being friends with Poppy and Alice. But one night the girls pay Zach a visit, and tell him about a series of mysterious occurrences. Poppy swears that she is now being haunted by a china doll – who claims that it is made from the ground-up bones of a murdered girl. They must return the doll to where the girl lived, and bury it. Otherwise the three children will be cursed for eternity...


I keep hearing and seeing wonderful, happy things about author Holly Black-most recently, the reminder that I STILL haven't gotten on board with the Spiderwick Chronicles, MUST get around to reading those! This new book sounds DELIGHTFULLY creepy, in the best way possible. Reminds me of some really great Are You Afraid of the Dark and Goosebumps episodes! (Yaay for 90's babies!) But yes, enjoying the sounds of this one. Must preorder,
