Overview
"A love letter to all your favorite horror movie classics . . . Micol Ostow's razor sharp writing and David Ostow's wonderful illustrations combine for an unforgettable reading experience."
--Courtney Summers, author of This Is Not a Test and All the Rage
Winnie Flynn doesn't believe in ghosts. (Though she wouldn't mind a visit from her mom, explaining why she took her own life.) When her mysterious aunt Maggie, a high-profile TV producer, recruits Winnie to spend a summer working as a production assistant on her current reality hit, Fantastic, Fearsome, she suddenly finds herself in the one place her mother would never go: New Jersey.
New Jersey's famous Devil makes perfect fodder for Maggie's show. But as the filming progresses, Winnie sees and hears things that make her think that the Devil might not be totally fake after all. Things that involve her and her family. Things about her mother's death that might explain why she's never met Aunt Maggie until now.
Winnie soon discovers her family's history is deeply entwined with the Devil's. If she's going to make it out of the Pine Barrens alive, she might have to start believing in what her aunt is telling her--and find out what she isn't.

Horror movie buff Winnie Flynn starts work as a production assistant on the New Jersey–based edition of her aunt’s paranormal reality TV series, Fantastic, Fearsome, just months after her mother committed suicide. When Winnie, a skeptic at heart, discovers the words “Not a Suicide” written on her bathroom mirror, the 17-year-old longs to contact her mother again, and believes those on her aunt’s show can help. Together with the Devil Hunters, a ragtag band of teenagers specializing in the Jersey Devil, Winnie uncovers a lineage of relatives with magical abilities. In a story written primarily as a letter from Winnie to her best friend Lucia, the Ostow siblings (So Punk Rock) incorporate maps, transcripts, storyboards, and wiki pages to create a 360-degree view of reality TV’s inner workings. Upon learning of the supernatural abilities that both she and her aunt possess, the stakes get higher as Winnie realizes she may be a target herself. Pop-culture asides (“This is Real Housewives a go-go territory”) and sarcastic remarks lighten the mood of this terrifying and addictive novel. Ages 14–up. Agent: Jodi Reamer, Writers House. (Oct.)
