Don't answer the phone because Micheal knows your number.

Helen Connolly's young nephew died in a tragic weather-related accident 16 years ago. She begins to receive harassing phone calls from him. Is it the ghost of young Micheal or was he never really dead?

This was a pretty cool mystery. It had downright terrifying parts, one in particular, for me. This book reminded me a lot of The Black-Eyed kids you always read about in ghost stories.

The book is set in the Fall, so it's a great book to read in the Fall when the leaves start to fall & it's cold outside. :) ( )

Fast paced mystery thriller. Friends die mysteriously after Hellen receives a strange phone call from a young boy claiming to be her nephew Michael. But Michael is dead, he died about 16 years ago when he was 10 years old. Not only are there the strange deaths and phone calls, but people think they see the 10 year old Michael. Could it be the ghost of the boy, or some pranksters from the nearby school for disturbed children?

I liked this book, it was predictable, but even after I figured it out I still wanted to see how it unfolded. ( )

Book description
"Auntie Helen," the little boy sobbed, "I'm home, and nobody's here!"

The phone trembled in Helen Connolly's hand. She could not believe her ears. This was her nephew, Michael Young, on the phone — Michael, who had been dead for sixteen years.

Who was this mysterious caller? Could it really be Michael? And if so, what did he want?
