Talk about Working out Your Faith with Fear and Trembling! The biggest thing to happen to Skary, Indiana, is rewned horror velist Wolfe Boone-or, Boo, as the locals fondly call him. For the past sixteen years, the reclusive writer has been the town's greatest attraction, having unintentionally turned the once-struggling Skary into a thriving tourist-trap for the dark side: from the Haunted Mansion restaurant, famous for its bloody fingers (fries splattered with ketchup) to Spooky's Bookstore (where employees dress like the walking dead). But when a newly reformed Wolfe suddenly quits the genre and subsequently starts to pursue Skary's favourite girl-next-door, Ainsley Parker, the little town made famous by his writings becomes truly horrified. Soon, a scheme is plotted to put the fright back into Skary - and get their most famous resident out of love and back into the thrill business. Filled with humour, small town charm, and a gentle message of enduring faith, BOO shows how even the most colourful group of busybodies and hypocrites can become a community changed forever by God.
