Description


The supernatural never sleeps in the second book of this spooky middle grade series!

Clio has already had one brush with the paranormal, and she’s dead set on making it her last.

But her new babysitting job is in a haunted house! At first, Clio’s excited to work at the historical Victorian mansion in town—until doors start closing behind her, objects move on their own, and messages appear from beyond the grave.

Clio enlists the help of her three best friends, Tanya, Maggie, and Rebecca, to uncover long-buried secrets from the past. Can Clio face her fear and solve the mystery of the haunted mansion?
