Synopsis

The Moment Collector by Jodi Lynn Anderson

For a ghost, one memory can change a life.

The yard of this house is a graveyard of moments and everything left behind is a clue. And I am here to dig.

There's a ghost haunting 208 Water Street. She doesn't know who she was, or why she's still here. She does know that she is drawn to Maggie, the new girl in town, and her friends - beautiful, carefree Pauline and Liam, the boy who loves her.

But the ghost isn't all that's lurking in Gill Creek... Someone is killing young girls all across the county. Can the ghost keep these three friends safe? Or does she have another purpose?
