This is what I know so far.... A family of four relocate from Philadelphia to a small town (population 12,482) of Drearford, New York, one and a half hours north of Manhattan and four hours from Philadelphia, and its a dreary 22 degrees, a nasty kind of cold worse than that in Philly.
The parents flip houses for a living, but that's not the reason for the move this time around. Something bad happened involving teen daughter Hendricks that caused her to spend considerable time hidden in the closet, thus a fresh start was in order.
So.....the attractive newbie is welcomed at school and all seems well until her new residence, the haunted 'Steele House' is mentioned. Her house has a name? A dark history? Well, it doesn't take long for curious visitors to arrive and the presence to make itself known.
THE HAUNTED may be too young adult for me. Intrigued though by the creepy prologue I've not mentioned here and I have enjoyed many YA and even children's books.
