GHOST SQUAD meets THE TAPPER TWINS
Estranged cousins Ophelia (11) and Caroline (9) are duty-bound to protect their family's haunted funeral home & cemetery. And now, the ghosts are in danger! An evil medium wants to consume all the souls, living & dead. To stop her, they must unravel the secrets hidden within their shared journal.
I think I heard a noise in the attic. It’s an old house, so that’s not super weird. The ghosts like to make a bunch of noise too. I keep wondering if it’s Gran. If she’s here watching over me, and I just can’t see her yet.
She gave you to me before she died. I think I’m going to call you Jo. I’ll try to write in you every day. I’m going to remember everything, just like Gran told me. She said writing is a way to honor memories. She can could be weird. She used to make me laugh so much.
[MARGIN NOTES-ARROW TO “…honor memories.”:
OPHELIA: See! Honor memories, not truth!
CAROLINE: She said different things to each of us.]
She died a week ago. I miss her so much. It feels like years since I last saw her. She’d always bang on my door in the morning, and yell “Ophelia Wunder, you’ll sleep when you’re dead, and even then, it ain’t gonna be for long!” She’d make raisin smiley faces in my oatmeal, and stick tamarind candy in my lunch bag.
And sometimes, on a nice day, she’d call forth the spirits and we’d play hide and seek or follow the leader with them. They always cheat. I can’t go invisible like they can. But soon, really soon, I’ll be able to see ghosts on my own.
I’m going to be a medium just like Gran was.
