Summary
From Newbery Medalist Avi comes the spine-tingling story of Tony Gilbert, who must solve a mystery surrounding the ghost of his uncle Charlie. For most of Tony Gilbert's life, he always thought of his uncle as 'Weird Uncle Charlie.' That is, until Uncle Charlie moves in with Tony and his family. He's still odd, of course-talking about spirits and other supernatural stuff-but Uncle Charlie and Tony become fast friends. Between eating ice cream and going to the movies, Tony is having more fun with Uncle Charlie than he ever could have imagined. So when Uncle Charlie dies suddenly, Tony is devastated. So sad, in fact, he starts seeing Uncle Charlie everywhere! Tony recently transferred to the Penda School, where Uncle Charlie went as a kid. The school is eerie enough on its own without his uncle's ghost making it worse. On top of which, rumors have been circulating about a student who went missing shortly before Tony arrived. Could that and Uncle Charlie's ghost be related? Full of twists and turns that get spookier by the chapter, 'School of the Dead' is a fast-paced mystery that Avi's fans will devour!
