Synopsis:

Strange things have been happening at Franny's new school.

First it was the Jelly Worm Fad.

Then came the exploding headaches that kept students home for days.

When the latest creepy phenomenon lands her sister in the hospital, Franny and her new friend, Beamer, try to get to the bottom of it.

Following a hunch, Franny discovers the one link that all these kids share—they're rabid fans of I. M. Fine, author of the mega-popular Chillers series.

But I. M. Fine is nowhere to be found ... or is he)
