A boy becomes possessed by an angry ghost after a visit to a Scottish graveyard
Twins Jennifer and Peter rarely get along, except when it comes to their fascination with ghosts, magic, and mystery. While visiting their grandmother in Scotland, the 2 children sneak off to a graveyard—which unfortunately turns out to be a very, very bad idea. Jennifer and Peter were hoping to see the ghost of Mary MacFadden, who died of a broken heart when her brother, Andrew, forbade her marriage. Instead, Andrew’s angry ghost takes over Peter’s body, and if Jennifer and their grandmother can’t get the spirit to leave within 24 hours, Peter will be gone forever!
