Grave Dancer's Club

Grave Dancer's Club, written by author James Gurley, is our first foray into middle grade fiction. It's a fantastic story of four friends facing off against an evil far older than them. We all thoroughly enjoyed the story even though our tween years are far behind us. Some books have a way of being timeless, and I think that Grave Dancer's Club is one of those stories. It has great values: family, friends, loyalty, and courage in the face of adversity. The setting is small town Mississippi, actually it's the author's hometown where some of his family still reside. James deftly weaves the setting and the story into one seamless piece that puts you right there with Jeff, Eve, Will, and Duke as they deal with puppy love, bullying, friendship, and vampires (that don't sparkle).


When Jeff Mason and his friends form the Grave Dancer's Club they're looking for a way to end their summer boredom. Soon tiring of simply telling ghost stories, they decide to investigate a sighting for themselves. Not really expecting to see a ghost, the four friends encounter something far worse than a mere haunting. Caught up in a mystery involving unsolved deaths from as far back as the civil war, the Grave Dancer's Club soon learns their own lives are in danger. What is the mysterious "wasting disease" that's been claiming lives in Corinth, Mississippi, for over 150 years? And how far will they have to go to keep from being the next victims?
This book is available on Amazon.com and Smashwords.com in both eBook and print.
