Book 1 of 3 in The Darkest Powers Trilogy.
Chloe Saunders finds herself in a group home for mentally unstable teens after one very bad afternoon at school, where she starts seeing, and talking, to dead people. And they can see and talk to her just as clearly. The group home is Lyle House, and as Chloe's stay lengthens, she begins to see that things there aren't what she initially thought they were. And neither are her housemates: Simon, Derek, Liz, Rae, and Tori. As terrifying secrets unfold, Chloe and her friends find themselves plotting an escape - and Chloe is ultimately betrayed by someone she always held close in her heart.
