Staff ghost story night happens every Thursday at the Poet's Corner Bookstore, but this Thursday will change Cassie's life in ways she could never have imagined. When Michael Penfield walks into the store as the new hire, Cassie is surprised to see her friend from childhood. But Michael has changed since she last saw him, from his completely serious demeanor to the scar that mars his face and neck. Cassie, still reeling from the death of her boyfriend, Daniel, has concerns of her own. That night, Michael tells a true ghost story from the earlier years he shared with Cassie, and both of them are soon involved with phantoms from the past: the haunted house where Cassie lives; a horrific murder from thirty years ago; even the story Michael has never shared with another living soul.
Not everyone is haunted, but everyone has a ghost story.
