K Kibbeeabout this book: On the outskirts of a sleepy Northwestern town looms a century-old secret, hungering to be awakened.
The townsfolk refuse to speak of it. The woods have engulfed it in a shroud of secrecy. No one even recalls the name of this forgotten place anymore, but the boy on train calls it "Nowhere Town."
She's put off when he sits down next to her; that bothersome, freckled-faced young boy who calls himself a "VIP Rider," but 13-year-old Anne soon finds intrigue in her travelling companion as he recounts the story of a long-abandoned town of Victorian homes that exists near her intended destination. When the town's entire populous mysteriously vanished in the early 1920's, much speculation surrounded the incident, but when Anne arrives at her stop and is greeted by the vile relatives with which she is intended to stay the summer, they recoil at the name "Nowhere town" and forbid her from digging deeper.
With only a wicked cousin for companionship, Anne soon finds her mind and feet wandering towards the forbidden town, but when she uncovers a mysterious old journal inside one of the abandoned home's cellars, lore of an otherworldly curse and the town's magical history leaves her chilled to the bone. The deeper she digs into the past, the closer Anne becomes to the terrifying realization that she is not alone here.
Prepare yourself for a journey through a deserted Victorian ghost town where magic rules and hope has been long forgotten.
