Sam Abernathy prepares to leave home for the first time in this charming follow-up to award-winning author Andrew Smith's The Size of Truth . Vampires have just moved in to the haunted house next door. All twelve-year-old Sam Abernathy wanted to do was make the most of his last few weeks in Blue Creek before he has to say goodbye. Goodbye to the well he fell in eight years ago; goodbye to cooking at Lily Putt's snack bar; goodbye to his overdramatic best friend, Karim; goodbye to unsweetened iced tea at Colonel Jenkins's Diner every Saturday with Bahar (who he does not have a crush on); goodbye to his old life. But the arrival of the Monster People throws a wrench into his plans. Things only get worse when the new family hires Bahar to babysit their child, Boris, who is almost certainly a cannibal. And then-scariest of all-they employ Sam's catering services. He can't possibly say no. If he doesn't survive the summer, Sam might not have to say bye-bye to Blue Creek at all.
