America’s Most Haunted: True Scary Places

Where are the creepiest places in America? That question was put to experts in various fields of paranormal phenomena. Based on their opinions, this book features ten places from all parts of the country that are guaranteed to give you the creeps–from a North Carolina mountain where bizarre balls of light dance and dart at night to a Florida town where more UFOs are sighted than anywhere else in the country.

Many people, including kids, claim they have seen ghosts in all sorts of places like cemeteries, bedrooms, attics, schools, roadways, forests and caves. In many cases, experts were called in to investigate these so-called hauntings. Usually the experts walked away baffled. All they knew for sure was that something weird had happened that could not be fully explained.

Each book in the Haunted Kids series is a creepy collection of eerie tales based on, or inspired, in part, by real-life cases taken from the files of noted ghost hunters.

Do ghosts really exist? You might think so after reading the spooky stories in the Haunted Kids series.
