Fourteen-year-old Laura Horton doesn’t quite fit in. She lives in a crumbling mansion that everyone calls “the haunted house,” and she has more in common with her parents’ eccentric artist friends than with the girls at school. So when loner Leon Murphy moves in next door, Laura avoids him at first; she doesn’t need anything else different or weird in her life. But when Laura becomes obsessed with uncovering the history of her house — the Visconti House - she finds that Leon understands her need to know what happened to the lonely Italian gentleman who built it. Together, Laura and Leon begin to unearth the mansion’s history, a history of elegant dances, thwarted love, and secret rooms. In their quest for the truth, the unlikely pair forms a deep friendship. But will their friendship, sparked by a shared interest in the past, survive in the present? A Junior Library Guild Selection Download and start listening now!
