Synopsis via Goodreads:

Fifteen-year-old Piper Crenshaw knows her house is strange. It’s never needed repairs since it was built in the 1800s, and the lights flicker in response to things she says. As if those things aren’t creepy enough, it’s also the place where her mother committed murder.

To prove she’s not afraid of where she lives, Piper opens a forbidden door, which hides a staircase that leads to the ceiling. That’s when the flashbacks of the original residents from 1875 start, including a love affair between two young servants. Each vision pulls Piper deeper into not only their story, but also her house. Piper confides in her best friend, Todd, whom she's gradually falling for, but even he doesn't believe her. At least, not until her house gets axed during a prank, and the act injures Piper instead, cutting a gash the size of Texas into her stomach.

Piper realizes her house isn’t haunted—it’s alive. To sever her link to it, she must unravel the clues in the flashbacks and uncover the truth about her mother’s crime, before she becomes part of her house for good.

  1. The scariest thing that's ever happened to me has to have been when I was a kid...about 9 years old and my family was staying with my mom's friend for the weekend. The house was older and belonged to my mom's friends dad (who had been in the house for like 50 years). I was freaked out because it totally looked haunted. Anyway me and one of my sisters shared a bed and my youngest sister and my mom shared the other bed in the the middle of the night my mom screamed and jumped out of the bed with my sister. Apparently, she felt someone's hand going up her leg while she was sleeping and it woke her... needless to say we never went back there again and I was terrified of the dark for a long time after that LOL

  2. Nothing scary in real life but one time I had a dream and I couldnt wake up it was like something pulling me back everytime.
