If only there was just one day when Poppy could look in the mirror and not see the girl staring back.  The other kids think she's a bit crazy.  But she is stuck here all the same.  Until the letter arrives! A great-aunt she never knew existed writes and invites her to come live at Larkspur Academy. What she finds there will change everything.  The same day she arrives, more children show up.  Dylan and Dash who are TV stars, Marcus, a cellist, Azumi who is running away from the place her sister died.  As the kids settle in, strange things begin happening.  And the kids realize that they all have something in common in this scary book about haunted houses.
