The Nightmary’s tells the story of a little boy named Timothy as he tries to uncover what is causing his horrific nightmares. On top of having nightmares, his best friend Stuart is now mad at him for being assigned to another partner for a class project.
Abigail is the new girl in school and has been trying her hardest to remain unseen. Things were going according to plan until Timothy got assigned as her partner. After choosing a painting at the local museum to use for their project, Abigail is hit with a water balloon. Now everyone knows who she is and it’s all Timothy’s fault.
Timothy and Abigail have a pretty rocky start, but quickly find out that they are experiencing the same thing; they’re being tormented by nightmares that are controlled by someone with a grudge against them.
They must work together to discover who is behind these hauntings while trying to survive long enough to finish their class project.
This book was pretty creepy. I read the majority of it at night and immediately regretted that as Dan Poblocki does an excellent job of creating a terrifying atmosphere where ghosts run rampant. Definitely enjoyed this novel and am looking forward to reading more from this author.
