CURRENTLY A WORK IN PROGRESS – SECOND DRAFT IN PROGRESS

Samantha has just moved into a new home with her Mom and her little sister Penny. It’s too big, too smelly, and too boring for her. She doesn’t understand why they had to move there in the first place and is sure she will like nothing about her new home. The worst part is she can’t even complain to her mother as much as she’d like because her Mom is just as sad and upset. Not that she says so, but Samantha can just tell something is wrong.  Unfortunately, things are much worse than they should be and Samantha is about to realize how desperate things really are.  And the only one who has any answers is a spider. A spider who is just as shocked to learn that Samantha can hear him as she is to learn he can talk. Together they unravel the mysteries of their troubles and Samantha discovers a whole new world of darkness and evil like she has never imagined. Her best chance to save her family is a strange old spider and his very strange friends.  If she could only manage to remember her manners and not lose their trust and support before she’s even gained it.
