Summary
Welcome to Thedgeroot, where Spaulding Meriwether is on a quest to make friends, become cool . . . and figure out why dead people are running around. "You know how people always tell you 'just be yourself?' That's terrible advice. You won't survive middle school that way. Trust me." Spaulding Meriwether, Thedgeroot Middle School's new resident weirdo and son of questionable television ghost hunters, just wants to fit in. But after a revenant chases him through the woods, Spaulding suspects there's something afoot in Thedgeroot. (At least he thinks it's a foot. Maybe it was a hand. It's hard to tell when you're running away.) Then he notices the chimneys of the abandoned factory at the edge of town puffing smoke--and his dead next-door neighbor materializes, along with David, the missing pet boa constrictor that supposedly ate him. Spaulding can't help wondering if these strange happenings have anything to do with his undead friends in the forest. Of course, Spaulding just has to investigate--but he may be biting off more than he can chew . . .
