St. Margaret’s School for Girls used to be an almshouse, until its previous occupants burned to death in 1923. When a bag of bones falls on twelve-year old Julia, she finds herself thrown into the spirit realm and face to face with the house’s past residents. Her new neighbors aren’t so lively, and some can’t even remember their own names. But as Julia soon discovers, there’s more to these people than meets the eye. One of these ghosts is not like the others, and Julia must find out why this person does not exist in the town records.
