Lia's family has owned this old plantation house since the Civil War, but no one has lived in it for generations because it is possessed by an evil spirit.  Lia's parents think all of the ghost stories are nonsense and are making plans for the family to move in.

But Lia has been reading her great grandmother's diary about the horrible things that happen to people in this house once night comes.

Lia decides to spend the night in the mansion to investigate this family mystery.  Only she doesn't realize how brave she'll need to be in order to take on the evil that awaits her . . .  (Davinna Artibey, Center for International Studies, Denver Public Schools, CO)
