About the book

When Travis and his sister, Corey, learn that their grandmother’s quiet Vermont inn has a history of ghost sightings, they decide to do a little “haunting” of their own. Before long, their supernatural pranks are drawing tourists to the inn. But Travis and Corey soon find out that there are other ghosts at Fox Hill Inn, and their tricks have awakened something dangerous and threatening. It’s up to these pranksters to figure out how to lay to rest the ghosts they’ve stirred. A fresh take on haunted houses, Mary Downing Hahn’s entertaining, spooky story pokes gentle fun at charlatan ghost hunters while suggesting that ghosts are not to be trifled with.

"Genuinely spine-chilling."

"Original and entertaining. . . . Accessible prose, shivery details, and creative touches combine to make this a truly satisfying ghost story that would transform with great eerie effectiveness into a chapter readaloud by flashlight."
