Diana and her little brother Georgie have been living in the woods behind the old Willis place, a decaying Victorian mansion, for what already seems like forever. They arent allowed to leave the property or show themselves to anyone. But when a new caretaker comes to live there with his young daughter, Lissa, Diana is tempted to break the mysterious rules they live by and reveal herself so she can finally have a friend. Somehow, Diana must get Lissas help if she and Georgie ever hope to release themselves from the secret that has bound them to the old Willis place for so long.

Thrills, Chills, and Ghosts!!!! The old Willis place is a book of suspenseful text, mysterious plot, and ghost that will make chills run up and down your spine. When Lisa and her little brother move into a small cottage, they discover a rather creepy lone house . Being the adventurous people they are, they went inside, and felt the presents of something, not alive,and not tangible. This book was a pretty quick read. Yet, it gave me GREAT pleasure! If you like nail biting stories, DEFINITELY put this on your reading list!
