Michael thought himself the luckiest guy in the world. Great parents, two of the best friends a guy could ever hope to have, a champion skateboarder who was sought out by sponsors, and even found time to be a good student. Sometimes his life seemed too perfect to be real.

Until the hammer fell: his father lost his job and his unemployment could not cover all the family expenses. His mother had a good job as an RN at a local hospital, but the loss of income hurt them badly. When his father found another job, it didn't pay nearly as well as the old one.

Michael could hear them talking at night: "What shall we do? How will it affect the kids?" Then one day, out of the blue but not unexpected, his parents informed him and his sister that they would have to sell their house and find a cheaper one--and in the recession and the real estate market that was going to be hard to do.

His parents managed to sell their house. They looked, trying to find something that they could afford, then one day, announced that they would take Micheal and his sister to see the house they had just purchased.

There was something wrong about the house. Not that it was in an old neighborhood, the oldest in the city, or the fact that some of the neighborhood was distinctly shabby. No, it was an intangible feeling, like something reaching out and trying to touch him--something he wanted to avoid.

Michael, not normally a complainer, asked his parents, "Why this house? Why something you'll have to put so much time and money into?"

But Michael had no idea what awaited him, and when the surprise finally comes it will shake him to the core. He doesn't believe in ghosts, but there's one living in his bedroom, who says she needs his help, and he's not sure what to think, or do

Review (10)

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I don’t know if this book was just too much of a young adult book for me or what, but I really had a hard time continuing to read it. I wasn’t impressed with the story at all but I do feel like any younger adult would love it. My kind of paranormal books is different than this so I think I was expecting too much.

The characters were the only thing I was interested in getting to know. The sister and what was going on in her life that nobody seemed to pay attention to. Michael and his love for his sister, he’s such a caring person. He grew so much considering all the things he was going through. And the ghost with her perky attitude that actually made me laugh a couple times.

I do however recommend this book to any young adult who loves young adult horror. Everything was written well, it just wasn’t my type of read.

About The Author

Once upon a time there was a teenage girl who wanted to be a writer, but nobody wanted her to be one. So she wrote and wrote in secret and never showed anything to anyone because she was afraid of what they would say. Many many many many years later she found out she could tell stories, yet she had much to learn about writing. People criticized her work, but she took the criticisms and used them to learn good writing habits–well, make that some good writing habits.
