Publisher synopsis: Things that go bump in the night are just the beginning when a summer film project becomes a real-life ghost story!
First Line: We'd only been at Grandma's for five minutes before Blake ruined everything.
Page 56: I stared at the ceiling for quite a while that night, thinking about this so-called "ghost" Julian had in mind for our movie. To say I didn't feel so great about the idea was what Blake would call a "massive understatement." But had I said anything to Julian?
Of course not.
He'd had that lively look in his eyes again-that creative spark that seemed to light me up, too.
