Eleven-year-old twins Hannah and Anna agree about everything—especially that they don’t want to move to the creepy old house on Hemlock Road. But as soon as they move into the house, the twins start disagreeing for the first time in their lives. In fact, it’s almost as though something or someone is trying to drive them apart. While Anna settles in, Hannah can’t ignore the strange things that keep happening on Hemlock Road. Why does she sense things that no one else in the family does?  It’s almost as though someone is trying to talk to her. Someone no one else can hear. Someone angry enough to want revenge. Hannah, are you listening? Is the house haunted? Is Hannah crazy? Or does something in the house want her as a best friend—forever?

“A spooky old house and a contemporary family come together in this multilayered mystery. Page-turning . . . well above the ordinary.” — The Horn Book Magazine

“The creep factor is never in doubt. Suggest this one to fans of Mary Downing Hahn who can’t get enough chills.” School Library Journal

“Chilling and lyrical, Kelley’s second novel is a ghost story with a cryptic narrator whose identity gradually comes into focus. The ethereal tone and steady parceling out of warning, clues, and bits of information . . .will keep readers invested in the unfolding mystery.” —Publishers Weekly

“Kelley nails it. This has a pleasing amount of chill for readers who’ve moved beyond Marion Dane Bauer’s gentler elementary spooky tales.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“It takes a haunted house to break the bond of identical twins. Mounting creepiness with well-placed spine-tingling moments make this scary story perfect for fans of Mary Downing Hahn.” — Kirkus Reviews
