Length: 59,000 words

Two years ago, 12-year-old Rilee came back from death and brought back anxiety, the ability to see ghosts, and Bob, her talking shadow dog.

While visiting the haunted Crescent Hotel with her parents, Rilee meets Emerson, a 12-year-old professional ghost hunter hoping to free the spirits at the hotel, and the two devise a plan: Rilee will hunt spirits if Emerson helps Rilee prove to her parents that her anxiety doesn’t control her.

To complete this quest, Rilee will have to battle terrifying spirits who won’t leave her alone, an evil specter set on taking away her second life, and growing feelings for Emerson, who’s quickly becoming more than just part of the deal.
