From the author of The Doll Graveyard comes a classic ghost story in the vein of Wait Till Helen Comes and The Dollhouse Murders! Hannah is used to feeling ignored. When her best friends leave town for the summer and her four siblings' chaotic lives all pull in different directions, she's left to wander the creepy old Victorian house where they live (named Nightshade after the poison) all on her own. To fill her time, Hannah sneaks off to explore Midnight Lake, and meets Cady, a girl who seems to know exactly how she's feeling. But as the two girls get close, Cady becomes possessive and demanding. She won't step foot in Nightshade, but she wants Hannah to defy her parents and sneak out for a moonlight swim so they can truly become best friends forever. And when Hannah discovers a cemetery beyond the lake with a hundred-year-old grave that belongs to a Cadence Stanhope, she starts to wonder about Cady. Could her new friend be a ghost . . . one who's trying to drag her to a watery grave?
