For most of his life, Tony Gilbert has thought of his uncle as "Weird Uncle Charlie." That is, until Uncle Charlie moves in with Tony and his family. Charlie is still odd, of course, talking about spirits and other supernatural stuff, but he and Tony become fast friends, and Tony ends up having a lot of fun with Uncle Charlie. When Charlie dies suddenly, Tony is devastated. Then he starts seeing Charlie everywhere! It doesn't help that Tony switched schools; it was Charlie's dying wish that Tony attend the Penda School, where Charlie himself went as a kid. Penda is eerie enough without his uncle's ghost making it worse. On top of that, rumors have been circulating about a student who went missing shortly before Tony arrived. Could that somehow be related to Uncle Charlie's ghost? Full of twists and turns that get spookier by the chapter, School of the Dead is a fast-paced mystery that Avi's fans will devour!
