When preteen Tessa has to leave her home in Florida to move with her family to Chicago, she is less than happy to trade warm sunny beaches for rainy, colder days. Determined to make new friends and adjust to her new home, however, Tessa is unnerved when strange things begin to happen in the old Victorian brownstone her family has moved into. Flickering lights, sounds of crying in the night, and icy patches inside the house are just the beginning. When her brother’s doll begins to cry real tears and mysterious drawings appear in Tessa’s sketchbook, she reaches out to her new friends, one a skeptic and another an amateur expert on graveyards, to find out who or what is trying to communicate with her. As their efforts lead to a local mystery over one hundred years old, Tessa must overcome her fears to face the unknown. Perfect for ghost story lovers and fans of authors like Mary Downing Hahn.
