A friendship between two kids who can only communicate via Ouija board...because they live in the same place, a hundred years apart. A little bit spooky, a little bit dangerous, and a little bit magical, this is an intriguing and exciting story that feels kind of like The Egypt Game for a new generation.— Tildy

Seances, psychics, and Ouija boards create a setting both mystical and dangerous.

But a chain of events leave Josie and her little sister Cass trapped in the house and afraid for their safety, and Alec must find out what’s going to happen to them.
Can he help them change their future when it’s already past?
