Sid the skeleton has been part of the Thackery family for 30 years and Georgia Thackery's best friend since she was 6 years old. He walks, he talks, he reads, his favorite movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas, and he has a big heart...not literally, but so to speak. And he has no memory of his life before he became a skeleton.
Shortly after Georgia and her 14-year-old daughter Madison move back into Georgia's parents’ home, Sid persuades Georgia to let him attend the Mangachusetts manga and anime convention. There he sees a woman who stirs up uncomfortable memories. Before long they discover the woman dead in her home and someone’s trying to kidnap Sid.
A Skeleton in the Family is a cute twist on the cozy genre. This charming tale with a touch of the paranormal will delight readers who are also fans of things that go ‘bump’ in the night.
