She wished something would happen.

Something good. To her. Checking her wish for loopholes, she found one. Hoping it wasn't too late, she thought the word soon.

Meanwhile, in another part of town, he felt as if the world was opening. Life was rearranging itself; bulging in places, fraying in spots. He felt himself changing, too, but into what?So much can happen in a summer.

CHILLS, THRILLS and the magic of GHOSTS! The Old Willis Place was the most amazing, well described ghost story I have read. Lisa, and her little brother move into a cottage surrounded by a giant forest. When going outside to discover there new area, they come about the Old Willis House. "Shiver darted up my spine, a whisper swiveled around the cold crisp air... something was behind me, and it wasn't my brother." This book was quit full filling and if you want a quick, satisfying thriller, read "The Old Willis Place". Unravel the wonders of the whispers, secrets, and the murder of old Ms. Gray Willis.
