Welcome to the Hall of Horrors, HorrorLand's Hall of Fame for the truly terrifying

Lee Hargrove wishes he could be lucky like his friend Cory Duckworth. Cory has to be the luckiest kid on the planet. Even Laura Groden, the girl Lee has a crush on, prefers to hang out with Cory. All Lee wants in life is to get a scholarship to Summer Sports Camp. But there's only one scholarship from his school and he's competing against Cory and Laura. Then Lee receives a good luck charm in the mail. It's a vulture's claw, and Lee's life seems to change immediately. Until bad things start to happen. The vulture's claw is bringing really bad luck. Lee tries to give it to Cory as a birthday present, but Cory already has one of his own. When both boys' luck take a turn for the worse, Laura wins the scholarship and admits to sending the bad luck charms to both boys.
