This was a decent story and if you are a history buff I would highly recommend it. I'm not, and some of the explanations and history of York were a bit too much for me, but looking past that, the story underneath it all was good.

Miranda is 16 and she and her best friend Jenna went to a party one night so Jenna could be with an exchange student she had the hots for. Miranda's brother Rob, (18 yrs. old) drove them. On the way home there was a terrible accident and Miranda got out of the car, but Jenna died and her brother Rob had to be cut out of the car. Miranda saw Jenna leave her body, come to Miranda and touch her hair then disappear into the corn fields. That was the first time she saw a ghost and she's been seeing them ever since.

Flash forward six months and Miranda, Rob and their parents are taking a "working vacation" to York.

Once there, Miranda of course sees ghosts everywhere and also comes upon Nick, a mysterious kind of homeless guy around her age who sees ghosts as well. She is occupied with him and Rob is occupied w/ a girl he meets at a local pub, Sally. Then all of a sudden hell starts breaking loose at the pub and there are no explanations as to how people are vandalizing it when there is no signs of forced entry.

The story ties itself up all neat and tidy by the end, and it really does pick up about 150 pages in. I kind of felt the author writes for a younger reader, but nonetheless, it was a decent book.
