Hattie has been living with Aunt Ivy and Uncle Holt since her parents died a few years back. Since Uncle Holt and Aunt Ivy never had children, Aunt Ivy has a completely different view on how a 16-year-old young lady should act. But November 11, 1917 is the day that changes Hattie's life once and for all. Her mother's brother, Uncle Chester had passed away and willed a 320 parcel of Montana land to Hattie. To claim Montana land, all a person has to do is improve at least 40 acres and fence them in by the end of 4 years. The problem is that Hattie doesn't have 4 years ' she only has 1 year left on Uncle Chester's agreement before it is sold for back taxes. Can Hattie finish everything that is required in time?

Summer starts on three bad notes for nine-year-old Abby; her best friend leaves for vacation, their new live-in babysitter, Hannah, is as scared and timid as she is, and her aunt sends another box of clothes that won't fit and a broken music box. When the music box starts to play by itself, and Abby and Hannah both see the ghost of an angry girl, things go from boring to frightening. Abby's eleven-year-old brother David makes things worse by playing tricks on Hannah and scaring her with his pet iguana. Hannah shows surprising resilience by refusing to be run off by mysterious happenings, and Abby might even impress her brother when she confronts the ghost. Don't read this one in the dark!

Did you ever wonder how prolific horror author Stine comes up with his bone chilling scenarios? Each of these ten tales comes with an introduction that describes an event from the author's own experience to make him wonder 'what if?' What if you found out your babysitter was practicing voodoo? Or what if you were in a cemetery on Halloween and the bodies came alive? Or what if you were at the Egyptian exhibit at the museum and time traveled back to when people, namely you, were about to be mummified? Or what if you read this book when you're home all alone...at night?
