Penny has a lot to deal with; her former manipulative friend, Rae is dead and her dad has recently wed a much younger woman. Mom cannot deal with Penny right now, and Dad thinks Penny should spend the summer with his new wife. Penny’s step mom, April, has decided to restore an old house in the deep woods of Point Finney, Washington, and Penny’s dad has advised her to spend the summer helping April. The locals of Point Finney are not exactly friendly and Penny soon figures out that the house she and April are living in as they restore it is haunted. Penny sees visions of children urging her to go into the woods as well as handprints left on the windows of the house and her stay in the house gets creepier with each day.  (Oklahoma Sequoyah Award, 2017)
