Description
From moving to a new house to making new friends and preparing for high school, life for the new girl in town can be unsettling. But thirteen year-old Courtney is unprepared for how creepy life in Murmur, Massachusetts turns out to be. Her ivy-covered house overlooking the antiquated cemetery next door is one thing, but Courtney finds herself thrust into a full-fledged haunted adventure after meeting Christian and Margaret Geyer, a strange father and daughter with unfinished family business. The body of their ancestor, Prudence, has gone missing from beneath her ivy-carved tombstone and must be returned to its final resting place in order to break the spell that looms over Courtney’s house. To add to the suspense and help solve the mystery, authentic documents and photographs are set at the beginning of each chapter pertaining to Murmur, Courtney’s house, and the infamous cemetery. Will Courtney uncover the secret lurking within the dark, dank underbelly of her ivy-covered basement?

display_description "What begins as a hot and sticky, run-of-the-mill summer day like any other in the remote town of Murmur, Massachusetts, quickly takes a turn for the creepier when Courtney strikes up a conversation with a strange father and daughter with an even stranger story to tell. Her house--they caution her--rests on the original foundation of a house that was put under a three-hundred-year old spell. And it will continue to play an important role in a haunted story until its original inhabitants are put to rest. Courtney is skeptical, until she uncovers a secret lurking within the dark, dank underbelly of her ivy-covered basement"--P. [2] of jacket.
