Are You Afraid of the Light? (Black Sand Beach #1)

Author(s): Richard Fairgray

NZ Middle Fiction 8-12-year-olds | Graphic Books

Twelve year old Dash and his best friend Lily are spending the summer at Back Sand Beach, where Dash's family has a house. But nothing is as it seems from the beginning. The beach house is a shack, and Dash's weird relatives are there. But more alarming is the zombie ram that crashes through the front yard. And the ghosts that call out to Dash from the lighthouse . . .

Each book contains full-color graphic novel panels on every page, and multiple connected stories.

Kathleen's review - There are strange goings-on at the beach, and some very strange people. I love the NZ immersion and our quirky black humour. This is a great graphic novel.
