But when a new caretaker comes to live there with his young daughter, Lissa, Diana is tempted to break the mysterious rules they live by and reveal herself so she can finally have a friend. Somehow, Diana must get Lissa's help if she and Georgie everhope to release themselves from the secret that has bound them to the old Willis place for so long.

This was actually more of a sad story than a scary one.

This was definitely one of my favorite books! It keeps you on edge and I refused to put it down! If you favor scary books then this story would be perfect for you!

Tired of the rules that have bound them ever since the bad thing happened, twelve-year-old Diana ignores her brother''s warnings and befriends the daughter of the new caretaker, setting in motion events that lead to the release of the spirit of an evil, crazy woman who once ruled the old Willis place.
