"After 17-year-old Evan's parents divorce, he moves with his mother and sister into a broken-down Victorian house that his mum is renovating. Evan doesn't expect much to change in his life; the move hasn't required him to attend a new school or be separated from his girlfriend, Carrie. But then Evan starts having disturbing and erotic dreams about a mysterious girl he doesn't know. Turns out, the house he and his family moved into wasn't empty - it still imprisons the ghost of Cora, a teenager who died there over 100 years before. Cora has mistaken Evan for her long-departed lover... and she wants him back. This eerie tale may not be science fiction, but fans of the tension and romance of The Host will want to give it a try."

Looks can be deceiving...especially with this 'ghost' story. Not worth your time to read.
