"Harrington returns to the genre of Lois Duncan with spine-chilling results...." said KIRKUS of this heart-pounding ghost story/murder mystery that will leave readers guessing til the end.

Jade loves the house she's just moved into with her family. She doesn't even mind being the new girl at the high school: It's a fresh start, and there's that one guy with the dreamy blue eyes. . . . But then things begin happening. Strange, otherworldly things. Jade's little brother claims to see a glimmering girl in his room. Jade's jewelry gets moved around, as if by an invisible hand. Kids at school whisper behind her back like they know something she doesn't. Soon, Jade must face an impossible fact: that her perfect house . . . is haunted. Haunted by a ghost who's seeking not just vengeance, but the truth. The ghost of a girl who ruled Jade's school -- until her untimely death last year. It's up to Jade to put the pieces together before her own life is at stake. As Jade investigates the mystery, she discovers that her new friends in town have more than a few deep, dark secrets. But is one of them a murderer?

Read an Excerpt

From THE DEAD AND BURIEDMy shaky fingers opened the folder. The title, DISCLOSURE STATEMENT, glared up at me in all caps. Exactly what that girl Faye had told me to look for. And there, at the bottom, was what she had wanted me to find. I closed my eyes tightly, the paper trembling in my hand. I didn't want it to be this. Anything but this.I reopened my eyes, but the words remained the same.Death by unnatural causes.I was living in a murder house.
