Grave Secrets by Annette and Gina Cascone.

What´s the only thing scarier than the creepy old neighbor´s house? The creepy old neighbor…

Amanda grabbed the ball and took off, running fast enough to break Olympic records. She looked back only once. No one was behind her. Ahead of her was the fence. She could see the amazement on her friends´faces. Just a few more feet and Amanda was home free1

“Move!” Amanda yelled as she hit the fence hard. “Get out of the way!”

Jarrad, Kevin, and Laura stepped back to make room for Amanda to squeeze through. As she began to, they were already congratulating her, sure that it was over and that she was safe.

Amanda was pretty sure of it, too. But she was wrong. Because Amanda was only halfway through the fence when she felt icy, skeletal fingers clamp down on her wrist.
