From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. In this funny send-up of the horror genre, best friends Ouchie and Squishy work to save their hometown's ancient bowling alley, the Bowl-a-Rama. Owned by the eccentric and wealthy Gazebo Zamboni, the Bowl-a-Rama has been condemned by the city council. Narrator Ouchie and the perennially terrified Squishy become friends with Zamboni, despite his weirdness, and work with him to save the bowling alley from destruction, even though it soon becomes clear that someone wants Gazebo Zamboni out of the bowling game. Squishy's encyclopedic knowledge of the horror genre makes him fearful of every plot turn--he constantly wonders, for instance, whether he or Ouchie is the main character of their story, since the main character always lives and the best friend always gets the ax. Young bowlers will enjoy the behind-the-pins descriptions of life at a bowling alley and relish a story in which only the bowling alley is at real risk of death. John Green
