Charlie lost his cousin Billy a year ago. He can't believe he's truly gone, a body was never found and Billy was such a good swimmer... Halloween night finds Charlie following a vampire, Billy always dressed as a vampire, could it be him? What Charlie finds instead is a world full of wonders and nightmares he's only heard about in stories. He can't let the opportunity to try to find Billy slip away. This puts him in the way of danger more than once, but he doesn't give up. This was a nice story about how we all suffer when someone is torn from our life, but it was a really cool spin on traditional monster stories. I would recommend it to kids 10 years or older for the most part.
