Struggling with being abandoned by her over-religious mother, Katelyn fears her father will learn her secret and leave her, too. Then, Katelyn is visited by the ghosts of Salem's dark past, and she realizes she has no choice but to get over her fears and learn how to help them find peace.
When Katelyn is paired on a History Project with two popular girls, Cassie Wallace and Laenie Pratt, she wonders how long she can hide what she sees without looking completely crazy. It doesn't take long before she sees that her secret can't be kept forever. After they begin the project together, investigating Salem's scariest and darkest secret, Cassie Wallace, a pretty cheerleader who loves to party, is kidnapped by a delusional online predator when she takes a risk on a social site on Halloween. She is held captive in one of Salem's scariest tourist attractions and no one can find her. Katelyn tries to keep her ability under wraps and help find Cassie before it's too late, but the secret is getting harder and harder to hold onto. This tale has gripping twists and turns, sure to entertain the Young Adult reader and many more.
