I'm glad you kept scrolling down for the day's second post! Here's a cover reveal from Spencer Hill Press - The House on Blister Hill by K.T. Gannon
Twelve-year-old Neddy Puddy's greatest desire is to settle the score with
Delores Shrumm, her arch-enemy and former best friend. But one summer night, a
strange snow falls over Neddy's hometown of Heaven's Peak, North Carolina, and
nothing will ever be the same again.
Neddy touches the snow, and it burns, leaving blisters on her hand. But where
did the burny snow come from, and what does it portend? The next morning the
snow is gone, but when Grandpa Joe dons his bowler hat, sets out with Old Jim
Flint on a secret errand, and ends up dead, Neddy has more than a broken heart
to deal with. She has a mystery on her hands.
Why did Grandpa Joe go to that awful, abandoned house on Blister Hill? And why
has a carnival pitched its tents on Blister Hill's front lawn? The Carnival of
Shivers is no ordinary carnival either. Dead dogs with shining red eyes patrol
the carnival's perimeter, and with attractions like Bash the Banshee, The
Diabolical Dunking Tank, and the Tent of Pickled Punks, the place seems
designed to make kids squirm.
To make matters worse, all the adults in Heaven's Peak have come down with the
floating flu, and can no longer protect their children. When BD Lamb threatens
to eliminate each and every bugsnot kid west of the Dismal Swamp, Neddy knows
that everyone she loves might disappear with the last fold of the carnival's
But Neddy is not alone. Despite being dead, Grandpa Joe is still doling out
advice from beyond the grave, because Grandpa Joe's spirit is stuck inside his
bowler that now rests on top of Neddy's head. With a posse of misfit kids and
Old Jim Flint by her side, Neddy will have to face her worst fear and worst
heartache, and live to tell the tale.
In Heaven's Peak, dead things own the world, and darkness has eyes.
But darkness doesn't last forever...or does it?
