Overview

When sixteen-year-old Alex accepts a summer job as caretaker of an old mansion, he thinks it'll be a breeze—he plans to lay by the pool, drive around in a nice car, and meet girls. But the moment he sees the sinister-looking house he remembers why he's there: a murder suicide has left it empty and it's his job to look after things until the new owner arrives. Alone on the sprawling property, Alex becomes the victim of strange, unexplainable events and he soon realizes something is horribly wrong. He knows he is being sucked into an uncontrollable situation—a terrifying battle between two ghosts—and there seems to be no way out.

I couldn't put this book down! It definatly raises the hair on your neck. I finished it in 2 days and I read it again and again. My teacher told me to read another book for a report so I lended it to him and he did not want to give it back. After a hour long verbal fight he gave it back and bought his own copy.

This book is very scary. You don't want to put it down, but it's too scary to keep reading. I liked this book because it made me think of how some of the settings looked. I would recomend this book to anyone who has an interest for mysteries and ghosts. Yoe know this book is Haunted.
