Product Details


“Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal conjure up a heady brew of hilarity, friendship, and dark forces in the small-town South, where being the funny, smart kids might just end up as the fight of your life. Fans of John Green and Stranger Things take note.”—Gwenda Bond, New York Times bestselling author of Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds

“I cannot think of a more exciting novel to read—and share with my sons—than The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek! Thank you, Rhett and Link, for this gem about friendship, courage, and adventure, which is touched by your humor, wit, and intelligence with each twist and turn!”—Mayim Bialik, New York Times bestselling author of Boying Up 
“I tore through all 324 pages of this book in one sitting—and I still didn’t want it to end! I would have been willing to read as many as 325 pages, or possibly even 326. Though if I’m being totally honest, they probably could have stopped at 323. Either way, I loved this creative book.”—Jimmy Fallon, host of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek reminded me, lovingly and longingly, of films like The Goonies or The Lost Boys—those kind of throwback narratives that make you recall what it was like to be a kid: the close friendships, that strange and needful breed of fear you only feel at that age, and the looming threat of adulthood lurking at the periphery. If, like me, you believe there’s a power vested in books that can take you back in time, then this book is its own little power plant.”—Craig Davidson, author of The Saturday Night Ghost Club

“An entertaining narrative . . . Brimming with 1990s cultural references ranging from New Kids on the Block to Hypercolor t-shirts, the story is funny, spooky, and at times terrifying.”Booklist
