1-2-3-4, I Declare a Thumb War

by Lisi Harrison, Daniel Kraus
Meet Whisper, Frannie, Sophie, Gemma, and Zuzu, five friends who tell eerie tales by night and navigate middle school drama by day.
MISERY FALLS, OREGON, IS ABUZZ AS the 100th anniversary of the electrocution of the town’s most infamous killer, Silas Hoke, approaches. When a mysterious text message leads the girls to the cemetery—where Silas Hoke is buried!—life can’t get any creepier. Except, yes, it can thanks to the surprise storyteller who meets them at the cemetery, inspires the first-ever meeting of the Graveyard Girls, and sets the stage for a terrifying tale from Whisper that they’ll never forget.
This slightly scary, extremely addictive story is the first in a five-book series by New York Times bestselling authors Lisi Harrison and Daniel Kraus.
“The humor is strong throughout, and the story is strongest when keeping readers guessing about what’s real—both in the interpersonal conflicts and the seemingly supernatural happenings.... A good blend of spooky and silly.” — Kirkus Reviews

“This clever, fast-paced story is filled with thrills that will have readers flipping pages into the night.…The town of Misery Falls gives an eerie feeling resembling that of Fear Street’s Shadyside.... A strong first title for fans of scary stories, horror movies, and things that go bump in the night.” — Booklist
