The last thing Kaylee wants to do is participate in a childish scavenger hunt--especially inside the abandoned retirement home on the edge of town. When she finds a bruised, deaf boy hiding inside one of the rooms, she vows to lead him to safety . . . only to discover the front doors are now padlocked, and her friends are nowhere to be found. Kaylee is about to learn that not everything that goes 'bump in the night' is imaginary, and sometimes there are worse things to fear than ghosts.
I concept of this book is creepy. Just the thought of visiting an abandoned retirement home at night or even in the day sounds scary. Thus the reason I wanted to check this book out. Ok, I was not overly fond of the characters in this book, except for Kaylee. I found the other girls to be mean. Kaylee was such a sweetheart. If they had treated me that way, I would have walked off and left them.
However what Kaylee and the other girls did experience inside the walls of the abandoned retirement home would have had me letting out a scream. Although, again while I found this book to be a quick read and intriguing, it was not as scary as I had hoped it to be. I wanted to feel goose bumps. Yet for the younger readers this has the right amount of "scary". I would check out other books by this author.
