So do the ghost sisters who haunt her house, as well as a shamanistic elder and her grandson.
Rae explores the town with her new friend, Chelsey, 14. They exhume a dark mystery involving an abandoned young mother and baby. Rae alone has the compassion to try to rescue them from an impending tragedy. But when the violent man shows up, it is Rae that needs rescuing. Enlisted by her courageousness and pure heart, outcasts and spirits rally to her aid.
