Sara Leung is prepared for a long, quiet night when she tags along on her mom’s overnight inventory shift at a discount store in Galveston, Texas. But it isn’t long before the night turns spooky when Sara spots ghostly children playing in the aisles of the store. She hears their laughter in the toy section. They send her messages. Sara quickly finds there are children everywhere in the store who want her help. But what do they need? And are they stuck in the store forever?
Every state has its own spine-tingling stories of ghosts and mysterious hauntings grounded in its regional history. The Haunted States of America series uses real-life ghost lore as jumping off points to new, chilling tales. But beware: sometimes real life is stranger than fiction.
