Miranda and her brother, Rob, are in a terrible car accident that kills Miranda’s best friend. After the fact, Rob has some serious fears about riding in cars and claustrophobia, while Miranda is mourning her friend. Her parents have professional reasons for visiting York, England and decide it is a perfect time for the family to get away. Upon arrival, Miranda realizes she can now see ghosts, but is most intrigued by the one across the street that she can see in the attic of a boarded up house. She meets a troubled young man, Nick, who can also see ghosts and invites her to some mysterious places in order to interact with them. The more time she spends with Nick the more she suspects he is planning something big and mysterious. Can she save him from making a terrible mistake that will change his entire future?
This story includes a lot of folklore about York which ties into the story well. The characters are well developed, especially Miranda’s family, despite being in the story rather infrequently. The mystery moves a tad slow at the beginning, but eventually takes off and it’s obvious that the groundwork for solving it has been laid from the beginning. Fans of ghost and/or mystery stories will enjoy this title.
