Synopsis: That s the first step, you know. Admitting you re afraid. But when there s love, Aunt Mari said, there can be no fear.

Davia is afraid of lots of things. Things like death, ghosts, strange places, and her mom s cancer coming back. But she can t avoid her fears now.

Far from their Wisconsin home, Davia and her parents are staying in Louisiana to help take care of her great Aunt Mara who is slowly dying. Everything about the spooky-looking mansion that Aunt Mara owns scares Davia.

When Davia first encounters Emilie, the ghost of an adolescent girl from the nineteenth century, she is frightened. Emilie seems eager to have Davia for a friend, but the ghost is unpredictable and difficult. Davia begins to learn secrets about Emilia and her own family s past from Aunt Mara stories of premature endings and regrets. As Aunt Mara s health deteriorates, she and Davia become closer. Together, they might just be able to help Emilie be released from the mansion and from world of the living.

Author Sheri Sinykin has written a sensitive, provocative tale of an adolescent who learns to accept uncertainty and comes to terms with fears. Readers will be mesmerized by the gripping supernatural mystery that lies at the heart of the story.

From the Back Cover: Charlie struggles to come to terms with her mother's desertion, her father's silence, and the cruelty of her classmates in this riveting tale about bullying.
