Casey Slater can't believe her bad luck. It's the summer before seventh grade and, while her friends will be hanging out at the local pool, Casey is in a remote country town where her parents are restoring an old, creaky, creepy house. Worst of all, everyone else in town thinks the old house is haunted. And soon Casey thinks so too-objects fly across the room on their own, the hallway floorboards creak when everyone is in bed, mysterious writing shows up in the dust on the mirror--and it seems like the ghost doesn't want them there. Casey thought she'd be dying of boredom, but now she's scared to death!
