Six Feet Below Zero

Holiday House

Coming Spring 2021!

A dead body. A missing will. An evil relative. The good news is, Great Grammy has a plan. The bad news is, she’s the dead body.

Caught in a one-of-a-kind predicament, 12-year-old Rosie and her younger brother, Baker, must honor their great-grandmother’s final wishes by pretending she’s still alive until they can find her will and locate their dear Aunt Tilly. Rosie and Baker do their best to follow Great-Grammy’s plan and act as if everything is completely normal, but as their lies get bigger and bigger, so do their problems. And the biggest problem of all? Their wicked grandmother, the horrible Grim Hesper!

SIX FEET BELOW ZERO is a little awful, a lot of fun, and chocked-full of a six-by-three-by-two-and-a-half-foot freezer’s worth of casseroles—and heart. Follow Rosie and Baker on their unforgettable journey!
