Since her mom died, Andies family has crumbled. Instead of working, her dad gambles away insurance money, while her sister, Paige, has put her future on hold in order to pick up extra waitressing shifts. Andies afraid of what will happen if people find out just how bad things are. Shes not sure how long she can hide the fact that theres no food or money in the house...or adults, for that matter.When her science partner suggests they study paranormal activity, Andie gets an idea. She wants a sign from her mom anything to tell her its going to be okay. Maybe the rest of her family does too. So she starts a project of her own. Pretending to be her mothers ghost, Andie sprays perfume, changes TV channels, and moves pictures. Haunting her house is Andies last hope to bring her family back into the land of the living.For anyone who loved Counting by 7s, The Haunted House Project is a journey through loss and grief, but ultimately a story of hope and selfreliance. As much as Andie has been changed by her mothers death, the changes she makes herself are the ones that are most important.
