It’s been a bad few months for Nora Wilson. There was a huge fire in her family’s apartment this summer, and her parents have been acting superweird ever since. They won’t let her or her brother out of the apartment anymore, not even to go to school. So when Nora’s parents say she can go trick-or-treating on Halloween, Nora is thrilled. And she’s even more thrilled to make a new friend, Caitlin, who just moved into the apartment building. Caitlin knows nothing about what happened to Nora’s family, but she does seem to know a lot about the ghosts that are rumored to haunt the building. As she shares these ghost stories with Nora, Nora can’t help but be chilled by them. Are they hitting just a little too close to home?

This spooky story is rated a Level 4 on the Creep-o-Meter.
