COULD THE NEW TEACHER'S CLASSROOM BE HAUNTED?
English teacher Marilou McCormick has moved to tiny Julian, California, to put a recent tragedy behind her. But it's hard to start life afresh when you're assigned to Room 13 at Drew Bailey Memorial High School. There's something decidedly creepy about the former domain of eccentric Scott "Scurvy" Lurvey, who took his life in the room eight years before. Like posters of authors that refuse to be torn down, students who seem possessed by fictional characters, and a heater with a mind of its own.
Marilou's only ally, Cyrus "Moondog" Nygerski -- ex-minor-league baseball player, sometime writer, and occasional school bus driver -- suspects a supernatural force behind the sinister goings-on. And Moondog ought to know -- after all, he happens to be a werewolf. But can Moondog prevail over a malevolent spirit that will stop at nothing to get its way?
