The Nightmarys

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Timothy July has been having nightmares. About his brother, who is in a coma after being wounded in Iraq; about his best friend, Stuart, who is behaving like a jerk; about the old biology specimens in jars lining the walls of his classroom; and about Abigail, the new girl who seems to be a magnet for trouble. Or perhaps she is the cause.

Suddenly Timothy’s nightmares are coming true. His brother, his face decaying, approaches Timothy on the street. Stuart ends up in the hospital, terrified that monsters are stalking him. And the specimen jars are tormenting not only Timothy but his teacher as well.

What is the secret in Abigail’s past that is the key to these horrors? And can Timothy figure it out before his nightmares become a deadly reality?

A follow-up to the well-received Stone Child, Dan Poblocki’s second novel will have his readers mesmerized until the last page—and sleeping with the lights on.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 26, 2010 – Seventh-grade best friends Timothy and Stuart are both upset when Timothy accidentally volunteers to be a project partner in class with a surly new girl named Abigail. But although Timothy and Abigail clash, after viewing a dire-looking painting called The Edge of Doom on a field trip they are forced to bond when strange and dangerous things start happening to them, including visits from two ghostly girls called the Nightmarys. It is up to them to solve a mystery related to Abigail s family, which involves an ancient cursed bone and a 60-year-old murder, before events turn deadly. Plot twists keep the pacing taut, conspiring to make readers believe that Timothy and Abigail have beaten the latest threat, only to put them in greater danger. Poblocki (The Stone Child) offers plenty of grisly, cinematically creepy imagery for readers who like a good scare, and the tightly wound narrative and ongoing tension between Timothy and Abigail will keep readers holding their breath until even after what they think is the climax. Ages 9 12.
