Rayne and Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner
Every Friday night, best friends Josie and Delia have been the hosts of a campy paranormal show, Midnite Matinee, on their local cable station. But does that mean Josie wants to chase her dream television career or go to a university? Horror movies are the only way Delia can connect to her dad, who left her and the rest of her family years ago. If she keeps pursuing Midnite Matinee, maybe he’ll see the show and come back to her. The uncertainty of their futures are suddenly even more frightening than anything on their television show.
