Uprooted from her home in California, Sara Collins and her father move into an old Victorian home on the New Jersey Shore. But the soon-to-be seventh grader dislikes her new home because 'dead people still lived there' and Sara can see them.

Although Sara began seeing spirits as a young child, it is not until she relocates to the East Coast that the spirits begin to interact with her and need her help, leaving Sara terrified of her ability and confused about what to do.

Aside from coping with the difficult cross-country move and her growing abilities, Sara wants nothing more than to be normal, make new friends, and fit in ... a difficult feat when one is haunted by a plethora of spirits that no one knows she can see. Or do they?

Sara's eccentric, fortune-telling downstairs neighbor, Lady Azura, seems to know about Sara's special gift. Speaking to Sara in riddles, the elderly mystic becomes a special and essential part of Sara's life as the young girl learns to accept her special gift and adjust to her new life.

Author Phoebe Rivers has crafted a riveting page-turner for tween-age readers aged eight to twelve years old. This first installment of the Saranormal series is definitely a must to add to your reading list!
