Synopsis: It’s not unusual to be a child growing up in a family and suddenly find that the normal, everyday life you have lived for as long as you can remember, is drastically changed by your family having to move; new town, new school, new friends, new HOME.
For Kenny Huldorf, living in sunny California was perfect. Being uprooted and moved to the other side of the country, Providence, Rhode Island, was as far from normal as could be. In addition, moving into a 200 year old historical house could be unnerving, especially when you hear a noise coming from a closet in your room in the middle of the night!
What is that scraping noise? What is that dark stain on the floor of the closet? What is the history of this house? Kenny isn’t sure where this will lead, yet what waits for him behind that door as he listens in the night will be enough to keep you reading until late in the night, if you dare!
