James McKinney has always lived life alone. He doesn’t have a family, at least none that he remembers. He’s always dreamed of having a house of his own, a place he can call home. Finding the right house, ready to work to make it his home, nothing can put a damper on his happiness, or can it?
Trey Andral, returning home from college, notices someone moving into his old friend’s house next door. Miss Hattie is still waving to him from the bedroom window, even though he knows she’s gone. He also knows he can’t not help the new guy make the house his own.
Trey has always been able to see and hear spirits, but what’s normal to him is terrifying to most others. When the spirits seem intent on contacting James, Trey has no choice but to share his secret, risking their friendship. If they work together, maybe they can figure out what the clues the spirits are giving them mean. And maybe they can find family in each other.
