Twelve-year-old Jake Marshall is convinced that the old house he lives in is haunted. While he tries to avoid the ghost, the town bullies discover him. With his head under the covers at night and his legs on the run during the day, he still finds time to harass teachers, annoy his siblings, and discover a secret room.
But Jake has more to worry about than a couple of mean kids and a man he can’t see. What’s the truth about his parents’ divorce and how the Marshall’s got haunted before they ever moved into Harold’s house?
Based on a real town, a real house, a real family, and maybe a real ghost, all names have been changed to protect the guilty.
