The Host

A Novella by

Nic's friends laugh at him all the time: when he gets chased by a stray dog, when he spills juice on himself and when he gets into trouble at school. After a disastrous Halloween party, Nic can't risk giving them another excuse to laugh at him, so when the boys visit the local haunted house he accepts a dare to go inside.

The trouble is, the boys don't realise that this party has a host, and he isn't very friendly...
