The most evil of evil...

So, we actually had a sit-down family meal tonight. All of this family time is a little scary. It forces us to have... gasp... conversation!

I think I had a blog post that started just like this years ago, but the best seanisms always come out at the table!

So, we were talking about this book we had read aloud - we took turns. It was a good, scary book that Sean had read a few years ago for school, and I made Tim read it this year. It's called The Lovely Bad Ones, and if you like scary stories, this is a good one.

The story is about these 2 kids who go and stay in a haunted inn. One of the ghosts is this really mean old lady by the name of Ada. She is so powerful and scary and... goosebumps! At the end of the book, she is lured away by a shade she thinks is her brother - but the other ghosts are convinced it's much more nefarious than that.

I asked the boys - who do you think it was, if it wasn't her evil brother?

Sean answered: "The FDA!"



I guess he listens to daddy's rants quite closely.

I said, "I was going to say the devil, but I guess it's the same difference!"

So is there a sequel where the author tells you who/what really did lure her away?

It's all in the book. It's a great book - juvie fiction, but a great story. My boys really enjoyed it!
