Overview

Jake knew that a field trip to the cemetery would lead to bad things. Bad things like an angry class bully. Bad things like a mysterious tombstone. Bad things like a scratched eyeball.

Most scratched eyeballs heal up in no time. They don't pop out of their sockets or float in the air or help you cheat on your math test. And they almost never go off in search of revenge.

Now Jake's eyeball has a mind of its own. Jake needs to find out what it's after and why. Whatever it is, it's after something ancient. Something evil.

"Some kids have been waiting their entire lives for a book about a floating eyeball, even if they didn't know it. This is that book." - Kirkus Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Some kids have been waiting their entire lives for a book about a floating eyeball, even if they didn't know it. This is that book. This is the kind of book that's impossible to describe to a friend. Anyone who tries will sound like a small child describing a dream: This boy is in a cemetery. And he pricks his eye on top of a gravestone. And then his eye starts floating out of his head, and it's flying around everywhere. And then the eye starts telling him to do things, only no one else can hear it. A five-word description might be better: It is a horror story. It has enough gross-out effects to appeal to R.L. Stine fans, and a few scenes near the end are frightening enough to scare full-grown adults. Like the classic Tales of the Crypt comics and Twilight Zone episodes, this is a story with no happy ending. Readers need to know that going in, since for several chapters in a row, it looks as though Jake and his friends might find a way to defeat the monsters. It's important to remember the title of the book. The plot is hardly ever credible, but readers will be too scared to notice. And the best horror stories don't need to make any more sense than a dream--or a nightmare. (Horror. 9-12)
