The Stone Child
by Dan Poblocki
It all started when Eddie’s father crashed into what Eddie thought was a monster. Then he noticed the way the people were acting. But it only truly starts when he finds The Enigmatic Manuscript, a book written in code by Nathaniel Olmstead, an author that disappeared 13 years ago. Then the haunting begins. Monsters from Nathaniel’s books come to life. The most frightening, the Woman in Black, is a monster that strives to breach the separation between her world and the world as we know it. Can Eddie break the code in time? Will he unearth the secret to the missing author? Can he stop his mother from unknowingly releasing the worst of then all?
I accidentally came across this book in the library, and loved it.
