Twelve years ago, for 12 days straight, the town of Widowsbury suffered a terrible storm, which tore open a gate through which escaped all sorts of foul, rotten things. Strange things and strange people were no longer welcomed in Widowsbury, for one could never be sure of what secrets waited under the surface . . .

Adelaide Foss, Maggie Borland, and Beatrice Alfred are known by their classmates at Widowsbury's Madame Gertrude's School for Girls as "scary children." Unfairly targeted because of their peculiarities—Adelaide has an uncanny resemblance to a werewolf, Maggie is abnormally strong, and Beatrice claims to be able to see ghosts—the girls spend a good deal of time isolated in the school's inhospitable library facing detention. But when a number of people mysteriously begin to disappear in Widowsbury, the girls work together, along with Steffen Weller, son of the cook at Rudyard School for Boys, to find out who is behind the abductions. Will they be able to save Widowsbury from a 12-year-old curse?

About the Author:

KATY TOWELL is the creator of the Childrin R Skary website. She is also a graphic designer, writer, and illustrator in Los Angeles with dreams of one day being the scary old lady in the house about which all the neighborhood children tell ghost stories. When not doing these things, she collects antiques, strange teas, and carnivorous houseplants, and she plays a little tune on her violin now and again.
From the Hardcover edition.

Review:

"Towell tucks violent tempests, maggoty slime, hideous transformations, nightmares, sudden terrors and like atmosphere-building elements into a rousingly melodramatic literary debut." —Kirkus Reviews

"If a studio hasn't already snapped up the rights to a feature film, they would be fools not to do it." —Edge

"A splendidly odd little tale." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
