Supervillain

Marshall Seaver is a fantasy/sci-fi nut. He’s always loved comics and graphic novels. In fact, he's even developing a graphic novel character of his own: a hollow-eyed skeleton with only a thin layer of pale skin and abnormally long fingers. Marshall realized that his so-called superhero, Gravedigger, was more like a supervillain. But despite his love of the imaginary, Marshall never believed that fantasy was real. Until now.


A Summer Alone

When Marshall’s best—and only—friend, Coop, goes to his family’s cabin for the summer, Marshall is all alone. His dad is out of town, his mom is dead, and his summer prospects seem pretty lame. That’s when it begins.


Hallucinations

Marshall starts having hallucinations: he sees walls covered in blood, he finds the same triple swirl pattern in different substances, and worst of all, he sees Gravedigger, the supervillain he created, standing in the flesh. And Gravedigger wants him dead.


Missing

Alone and desperate, Marshall turns to Coop’s hot older sister, Sydney, for help. He needs to contact Coop, but his cell phone is out of service. But that’s not the only reason Marshall can’t reach him. Coop has gone missing. Did he run away, or are there other forces at work? What if Gravedigger isn’t a hallucination all? What if he has Coop?


The Bottom Line

Morpheus Road: The Light by D.J. MacHale is just plain scary! It’s a fantastic teen horror book that is sure to scare the pants off you. It’s bloody, eerie, and heart-pumping intense. Tell us what you think of Morpheus Road: The Light in our comments section below.

I have meant plenty that still misgendering people because of their profile picture. It is as wrong as picking on them so much they decided to  comment suicide.

I agree. The older shows were pretty good.All the new shows like Pickle and Peanut, Sansay and Craig, Two More eggs etc, are pretty stupid. We did though, have a few good shows during our modern era for kids like Phineas and Ferb, Gravity Falls,  and Steven Universe (the last one is probably not, for a few concepts in the plot but there's kids who watch it)

I though @partydiva01 meant new shows that replaced Max and Ruby, Blues Clues, and Dora. But still most shows cartoons for our age are pretty bad too. Like Two More Eggs or Pickle and Peanut and Sanjay and Craig, they're stupid. But we all need a little entertainment every once in a while. But for younger kids, their brains are developing. They need educational shows, like we had. They were fun too!
