"Jimmy Stone's Ghost Town will captivate everyone from middle grade readers to adults who never forgot the thrill of a good ghost story." - Eileen Cook, author of THE EDUCATION OF HAILEY KENDRICK and GETTING REVENGE ON LAUREN WOOD
"This spooky tale is told with Scott Neumyer's trademark wit and insight. Ghost towns are fraught with danger, but Neumyer makes them irresistibly appealing with the help of Jimmy Stone." - Lara Zielin, author of DONUT DAYS and THE IMPLOSION OF AGGIE WINCHESTER
"Scott Neumyer's debut novel, 'Jimmy Stone's Ghost Town,' is rife with the gifts of a natural storyteller, one who pulls the reader in seamlessly--and, more critical, without ever showing his hand. The book is a best-seller for a reason--it's beautifully written, you connect with the complex characters, you're charged by the imagination, fueled by the energy. That the book is poised for a sequel is just another reason to get excited for the world this 'Town' is only on the cusp of exploring." - Christopher Smith, author of the best-selling thriller, FIFTH AVENUE

For Jimmy Stone, life in "Boredsylvania" has been pretty tough. His mom's died, his dad's completely checked out, and he spends his days running from the Coogan Boys, the local bullies. It isn't long, however, before "Boredsylvania" gets a lot more exciting. With his new friend, David and his dog, Trex, by his side, Jimmy discovers that the woods beyond his backyard hold the key to a world he could never even imagine. Soon, he ends up in Ghost Town, where he’s greeted by his ghost guide, Gasp, and receives an ominous prophecy.
“Seven things you must find.
One thing for each day.
Seven things you must find.
Or else they all will pay!
Suddenly Ghost Town becomes as scary as it sounds, and Jimmy Stone realizes that he's in way over his head.
