Eve Hallows and the Book of Shrieks by Robert Gray

Eve Hallows and the Book of Shrieks

Middle school fiction that I think even adults will enjoy. This is a funny and entertaining book and I will keep it on my e-reader so that when my kids are a bit older I will be able to read it to them!

Eve is a great character who really is developed well and is easy to like! There are tons of laughs when the family must learn to live in the world of humans and you just will not want to put this book down. So if your kids are board and Spring Break seems like it will last forever, introduce your family to Eve.




For fourteen-year-old Eve Hallows, life can be summed up in one word—horrible. She has the most horrible friends. She lives in a horrible old castle. Even her family is a bunch of horrible monsters. However, in the monster-inhabited world of Gravesville—a world where messages are sent through Ouija boards, jack-o’-lanterns get facials to suit their moods, and the worst thing Eve has to deal with are those annoying zombie tourists who overrun her favorite graveyard during the Halloween season—horrible means wonderful. And everything for Eve is perfectly horrible. But her life is about to go head over heels when a mysterious group known as The Source starts terrorizing Gravesville. Now she must move to the human world—where everything is opposite ... and for Eve, that's absolutely adorable!
