Publisher's Summary

For 16-year-old Sadie Sanders, dealing with the dead is growing tiresome, especially when they expect her to be their messenger from the afterlife. But when her family moves to Salem, Massachusetts, and she finds the diary of a young girl named Elizabeth who was accused of witchcraft, she may need some help. 

Soon, Elizabeth begins to haunt Sadie, first in her dreams and then when she’s awake. As Sadie delves into Elizabeth’s journal, she slowly uncovers the secret Elizabeth needs to reveal, and it’s one that could change the course of history. 

Sadie needs help, and she wonders who, if anyone, she can tell about it. Worried that her friends and family wouldn’t believe her, or worse, prevent her from continuing her journey to find the truth, Sadie has a choice to make...and it’s not going to be an easy one.

Ummm is there an editor in the house?

There were so many things that were wrong with the recording of this book. The narrator would say a line then repeat the same line. This happened multiple times. The narrator mispronounced words. The narrator actually skipped saying words. Again, for both of these things it wasn't just once, it was multiple times. I hung on because the STORY was good. Having said that, I really don't know how the story was released as it is recorded.

Fun YA Mystery with a historical flair

I loved this book! It was such a fun read...well listen. This is the story of 16 year old Sadie. She moves to Salem, Mass with her family. She becomes best friends with a girl named Lucy and has her first boyfriend, a goofy boy named Noah. Together these three embark on an adventurous mystery concerning a diary Sadie finds hidden in her home. It's the diary of girl name Elizabeth who was persecuted with her family during the Salem Witch Trials. The journal reveals the truth and Sadie and her friends are on a mission to find out the details and help Elizabeth clear her family's name. They also have the help of Elizabeth's ghost. Sadie can see ghosts and they come to her for help. For the first time in her life Sadie feels like she belongs. She shares her gift with Lucy and Noah and she's expects them to think she is a freak. But they think it's cool and help her on this adventure. This was a great story from start to finish. It had me hanging on to every word. I felt like I was along on this quest for the truth with these characters. And this is just book one. There are more books in this series and I can't wait to read on. I highly suggest this YA mystery to all readers. This story is entertaining for all. It's not just a paranormal mystery with historic elements. It's also a story about finding yourself and accepting who you are, even if it's different than everyone else. What makes us different is what makes us who we are. It's a great story about surrounding yourself with people who support you and are there for you when you need them.
