Lewis Dearborn’s life transforms after the death of his great grandfather.  His parents inherit the great grandfather’s historic mansion, with one catch:....they must live in the mansion for a year before the estate may be sold. Lewis claims the tower room with an ocean view and life takes a ghostly turn. He soon finds there’s more to be discovered than windows that won’t latch, fishy odors, and strange noises that are hard to ignore. Indeed, he seems to have inherited seven pirate ghosts who perished two centuries ago, and a mission to help these feisty ghosts to cross over from the land of the living…. Lewis also discovers that the pirates become visible when they are scared or upset. How can he keep their presence secret as he walks the crew across town to where their ship sits in a museum, waiting to ferry them to the underworld? Who else will discover his secret?
