Rosa Ramona Díaz has just moved to the small, un-haunted town of Ingot --- the only ghost-free town in the world. She doesn’t want to be there. Jasper Chevalier has always lived in Ingot. Jasper has never seen a ghost, and can’t imagine his un-haunted town any other way. Then an apparition thunders into the festival grounds and turns the quiet town upside down. Rosa will need all her ghost appeasement tools --- and a little help from Jasper --- to rein in the angry spirits and restore peace to Ingot before it’s too late.
