This graveyard hides buried dolls . . . and buried secrets!

Shelby Tate isn't happy about having to move to Thornewood Manor. But then she discovers a doll cemetery in the backyard of her new house, and soon she's finding out all sorts of things about the dolls, their mysterious powers, and the girl who once owned them. If Shelby can put the doll's souls to rest, she and her family might actually have a chance to be happy at Thornewood. But if she can't . . . the dolls will have their revenge.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for The Doll Graveyard:

"Perfect for fans of classic spooky stories, this is scary enough for older kids and tame enough for younger readers, too." —Booklist

"...The treatment of life for a family post-divorce is realistic and strong. The main character navigates a difficult issue for preteen girls: that of finding her place in the social hierarchy at a new school. The management of Shelby's issues reads a bit stronger overall than the horror sequences, making this a book that could be recommended for more than just those looking for a thrill..." —School Library Journal
