From APALA Honor award-winning author Susan Tan, a middle-grade novel about a girl who must overcome her worries to find the truth behind her town's urban legend.

Moving to a new town isn't easy, but it's even harder when you’re dealing with a stepdad who just left and a mom who can’t get out of bed long enough to find a new job. But Mo doesn’t have time to dwell on these things. Because it’s her job to keep her family together. To keep them safe.

So when an elephant starts to haunt her dreams—and a mysterious spirit begins attacking her home—Mo knows it’s up to her to intervene before things get too dangerous.

Along with her new friend Nathaniel, she embarks on an investigation for the truth about the town, its people, and their history. But things are much more complicated and tangled than she could’ve thought. To find out what’s really going on, Mo might have to live a little dangerously after all.
