The year was 1954. It was a
Monday morning and Seth Crandell was already having a bad day. With
just one week to go before his fourteenth birthday, Seth had no idea how
quickly and permanently his life could change--not for the worse, but just
All he did was go to school that
morning, like any other day. But, something happened that made him
see things and people differently. And then his life began to weave
and churn in all sorts of odd directions when he became friends with
Haddie, the girl that everybody made fun of and nobody ever talked to.
Seth was sure glad he was no longer
like everybody else.
For the rest of the fall school term,
Seth and Haddie discovered all sorts of things--about themselves, their
families, their community, friendship and especially that things aren't
always as you are led to believe--even ghosts!
