Jadie never spoke, never laughed, never cried. She spent every waking bout locked in her own private world of shadows. Nothing in Torey Hayden's experience had prepared her for the nightmare Jadie revealed to her when finally persuaded to break her self-imposed silence.

A little girl was trapped in a living hell of unspeakable memories. And it would take every ounce of courage, compassion and love that one remarkable teacher possessed to rid the 'Ghost Girl' of the malevolent spirits that haunted her.
