The Millers are unfazed by the rumors and horror stories surrounding their new home. After all, ghosts don’t exist. The only terror Frank and Trudy Miller have to worry about is their twelve-year-old, Zoe. She never listens to her parents and throws embarrassing temper tantrums to get her way. When Zoe discovers a locket in her new bedroom, she is soon pleased to learn that the piece of jewelry comes with a friend: the ghost of a little girl. Violet died in the 1800s, but she and Zoe have an awful lot in common, including their desire to be loved.
