The Headless Horseman of Downers Grove (Hazyscapes #3) [Pre-Order: Ships Sept. 2024]


The Headless Horseman of Downers Grove (Hazyscapes #3) [Pre-Order: Ships Sept. 2024] is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.

In Downers Grove, the only thing worse than a hot-headed bully is the one without a head at all…

Being an outsider at Downers Grove Middle School was hard enough. But as Bodie, Abe, and Odesa learn, things could always be a lot worse…and a lot creepier. When a vengeful, headless phantom begins to stalk them in the night, the three 12-year-old strangers must work together to confront a tragic past that mysteriously connects them all.

Book #3 of the thrilling Hazyscapes middle-grade anthology, The Headless Horseman of Downers Grove is a pulse-pounding story of fantastic folklore, improbable friendship, and the lasting harm of intolerance.
