This book was good and aggravating at the same time.

It's one of those books where the main character and the reader knows something is terribly wrong but NO ONE will believe them.

Daniel Anderson doesn't believe in ghosts and he doesn't believe that a ghost named Old Auntie lurks in the woods behind his house waiting to snatch children and turn them into her servants.
But when his younger sister Erica becomes obsessed with her doll, and begins to act stranger, Daniel knows something is up. He has to protect his sister, from real things ... and he's going to try to protect her from things beyond his imagination.
When Erica disappears, Daniel knows he has to do something. He has to find a way to defeat the old witch, and bring back his sister before his parents give up hope, and move away for good. He has to save Erica before she forgets who she really is. Before Old Auntie gets every last drop of youth from Erica.   Check it out!

This book is about a 14 year old girl, Lacey who lived in Peace, Florida who took care of her mom who was "sick". She used to have help from her Aunt Linda, until Lacey's mom forced her to move out. Angela claimed she saw her dead father and that he would talk to her. He made her do things that weren't right. Their neighborhood talked about how Lacey's mom, Angela was crazy. This made Lacey not feel normal because the words would get to her school, where kids would make fun of her, leaving her with no friends. She blamed her mom, then blamed her granddad, who died, causing her mom to go into depression and become "sick." One day, when she thought things were getting better and when money was need, she convinced her mom to work, Lacey had a volunteer job as well. The volunteer job was at the library where her Aunt used to work, so going there reminded her of her beloved Aunt. On the bus on their way to their jobs, she met a guy, Aaron. She then began to started feeling normal. Later in the day, when she was supposed to pick up her mom, she wasn't there, which she was really scared and felt guilty because she had wanted her mom to go to work so she can have time to herself, keep in mind she was just a 14 year old with a burden of taking care of her mother who wasn't okay. Aaron stays with her and helps her look for her mother, later on Lacey calls her Aunt Linda. After awhile she finds her mother, but she calls for help due to what her mother was suggesting them to do, which Angela'a dead father "told" her to do. In the end, Angela gets medical help, although Lacey was really upset by letting her mom go, she was hoping things got better.  Check it out!
