The glass had broken away from the windows long ago, leaving nothing but space between us and whatever it was that was watching us…” Nora is a lonely fifteen year old who dreams of more adventure than life in suburban Maryland can offer. Fascinated by the supernatural, she begins exploring an allegedly haunted abandoned house on the property where her father works. She soon finds herself tangled in the mysteries of the house as she uncovers its many secrets and meets a shy ghost called “Walter.” Including original documents with the author’s notes, this book is based on real events and reveals how a girl, a house and its ghost will become intertwined forever.
