This is an awesome ghost story with a good, creepy feel to it. At first it seemed as though it was meant for younger audiences. It had an R.L. Stine's Goosebumps sort of feel to it. And didn't. It grew progressively dark and disquieting.

Seventy-one years ago, Annie Garrett lived in the same house, within the same room, as Annie Riley, whose family just moved in from New York. Poor Annie Riley had a biking accident which left both of her legs in hard casts. She has been bedridden since her arrival to the new house. When she sees a woman wearing a white dress near the garden, her mother is quick to dismiss her sighting as part of her overactive imagination. After all, being holed up in a room with nothing to do can get those creative juices flowing, right? Only, what happens when other members of her family begin experiencing supernatural occurrences?

Written from shifting perspectives, between the two Annies, the momentum of this story builds with each chapter. The transformations of certain characters are startling and their actions even more shocking. This story is suspenseful and compelling.

It's the perfect quick read for a chilly, spooky October night!
