About This Book
This book has bite . . . When Lena and her best friend Abby find an old Polaroid camera, they never suspect that a creepy ghost story is about to develop!
Best friends Lena and Abby love searching through thrift stores for lost treasures. When they find an old Polaroid camera, they can't wait to try it out. But the photos that develop are troubling; things that weren't really there appear in the pictures. Twelve-year-old Lena is haunted by the camera's former owner. When the boy starts appearing in the pictures she takes, Lena realizes he is trying to tell her something.
Creepiest of all is the image of a boy, dark and angry looking. He shows up, over and over, clearer each time. Can the girls discover what the ghost boy wants — before it's too late?
