Then he starts seeing Uncle Charlie everywhere! It doesnt help that Tony switched schoolsit was Uncle Charlies dying wish that Tony attend the Penda School, where Uncle Charlie himself went as a kid. The Penda School is eerie enough without his uncles ghost making it worse. On top of that, rumors have been circulating about a student who went missing shortly before Tony arrived.
