Description
"A love letter to all your favorite horror movie classics . . . Micol Ostow's razor sharp writing and David Ostow's wonderful illustrations combine for an unforgettable reading experience."
--Courtney Summers, author of This Is Not a Test and All the Rage

Winnie Flynn doesn't believe in ghosts. (Though she wouldn't mind a visit from her mom, explaining why she took her own life.) When her mysterious aunt Maggie, a high-profile TV producer, recruits Winnie to spend a summer working as a production assistant on her current reality hit, Fantastic, Fearsome, she suddenly finds herself in the one place her mother would never go: New Jersey.

New Jersey's famous Devil makes perfect fodder for Maggie's show. But as the filming progresses, Winnie sees and hears things that make her think that the Devil might not be totally fake after all. Things that involve her and her family. Things about her mother's death that might explain why she's never met Aunt Maggie until now.

Winnie soon discovers her family's history is deeply entwined with the Devil's. If she's going to make it out of the Pine Barrens alive, she might have to start believing in what her aunt is telling her--and find out what she isn't.
