    Fourteen-year-old Sam McLean is less than thrilled with the prospect of moving to a collection of old mansions on the northern fringe of a small town called Ringwood. A nobody at his old school, Sam is desperate to be accepted by the cool kids and latches on to Cody Barns, aka Maniac. Cody’s claim to fame is performing wild stunts — the crazier the better — and posting them on his blog.  
     
      
    When Sam reluctantly joins Cody and his sidekick, Javon, on their midnight ghost riding, a practice in which the driver and passenger climb onto the hood of their moving car and dance, something goes terribly wrong. Cody convinces Sam to flee the scene, leaving Javon for dead. But soon mysterious messages appear on Cody’s blog and anonymous notes are slid into Sam’s locker. As Sam struggles with his conscience, a haunting question remains: Who else knows the truth?

    Over the summer, Rinn stopped taking her bi-polar meds and blames herself and the voices she heard for her grandmother's tragic death. To get a new start, Rinn and her mother are moving back to her mom's small hometown and Rinn has promised to never miss a pill again. The fresh start is just what Rinn needs. She falls in with the popular girls at her new school and she falls for very cute "farmer boy" Nate. But River Hills High School has a secret. The ghost of Annaliese, a girl who died when Rinn's mother was a student there, haunts a hallway the teens call The Tunnel. Rinn's not sure she believes it, but slowly Annaliese seems to be punishing those who enter the tunnel alone. A chorus soloist loses her voice, a star cheerleader falls off the pyramid, and then it gets worse-worse as in death. Rinn still doesn't know if Annaliese is real, and there's only one way to find out. Rinn needs to ditch her bi-polar meds again and see what the voices are really trying to say....

    Jocelyn's twin brother Jack was everything she had growing 
    up in a world of foster homes - and now he's dead, and she has nothing. Then she gets a cryptic letter from "Jason 
    December" - the code name her brother used to use when he made up elaborate 
    puzzles to fill the unhappy hours at Seale House, a terrifying foster home from their childhood. Only one other person 
    knows about Jason December: Noah, Jocelyn's childhood crush, and their only 
    real friend among the troubled children at Seale House. 
     
    But when Jocelyn sneaks off to return to Seale House and the 
    city where she last saw Noah, she gets more than she bargained for. Turns out Seale House's dark powers weren't 
    just the figment of a childish information. And someone is following Jocelyn. Is Jack still alive? And if he 
    is, what kind of trouble is he in - and how can Jocelyn and Noah help him?
