Buddy wants to prove to his big brother that he is not a scared little kid anymore.
For as long as Buddy can remember, there has been a rumour that the local theme park is haunted. After a fight with his brother, he convinces his friends that they should sneak into the park and spend the night. That way, everyone will know how brave they are. But can Buddy and his friends avoid the guards and the cameras and whatever is haunting the theme park? Or is the whole thing just an urban legend after all?

“An excellent story about friendship, team work, brothers and growing up…Fast-moving and simple with the book’s themes clearly laid out. The supernatural element adds to the story but is suitable for the intended audience. Highly Recommended.”
