Description

By age thirteen, the list of nasty foster homes Goff had lived in was longer than he was old. He'd given up on having friends long ago. He survived by keeping his head down, hiding from bullies, ignoring teasing morons, and pouring himself into earning a Scholarship to Amworth Academy, a place he hoped he could finally call home. When transferred to Spraksville, a town with a history of witchcraft, it was just more of the same to him -- until the stone gargoyles started talking to him. That changed everything. 

    With the help of a few unexpected friends, he discovers that ending up in Spraksville wasn't accidental. Thirteen generations back, Goff’s ancestor stopped a maniacal dark wizard from performing an ancient ritual to become invincible. Now, due to magical laws, Goff is the one who must stop the present-day counterpart living in Spraksville—Harkland Mathers XIII—from performing the same ritual on Halloween night. The problem is that the Mathers clan placed a diabolical curse on Goff's family tree to make them as magical as broken kitchen appliances. Basically, Goff opposing Mathers is like a box turtle taking on a T-Rex. 

    As Halloween approaches, Mathers magically seals Spraksville off to escape and transforms the adults into an army of soul-sucking ghouls. Stopping the ritual seems impossible as the sky boils crimson at sunset on Halloween night. No one in town will survive, and the rest of the world will fall into darkness. It’s misfit vs. master in a take-all battle where the master has a full set of pieces and the misfit only a single pawn. The stakes couldn’t be higher, and for Goff, the odds couldn’t be worse.

Basically, Goff doesn’t stand a chance.
