Paige Parker can't wait to turn fourteen. Thirteen is definitely not her lucky number. So much has changed since her thirteenth birthday. Uprooted from her lifelong home in Providence, Rhode Island, she's now living in a run-down farmhouse in the rural village of Heather Hollow, afraid she'll die of boredom. Paige soon finds boredom is the least of her worries. There's already someone in residence in her new home: the ghost of a girl who died more than a century ago! Worse, the ghost seems to have a connection to Mercy Brown, the infamous vampire buried in a local cemetery. Paige enlists the help of her friend Amelia to sort out all the bizarre aspects of life in Heather Hollow: there's a clique of mean girls on mopeds, a goth girl with an interest in historic cemeteries, a cute boy with an uncle who authored a book on time travel, and an ancient librarian protecting a secret. There's also the Something that's lurking in the woods nearby. Something that seems to be stalking Paige. Can Paige uncover the truth about her strange new home in time to save herself from a terrible fate? Or will she become another casualty of the evil that lurks in Heather Hollow?
