Summary: If fourteen-year-old Kirra is having a mid-life crisis now then it doesn't bode well for her life expectancy.

Kirra and the ghost make a pact. She'll prove who murdered him almost twenty years ago if he makes her popular, gets her parents back together, and he promises not to haunt her. Things aren't so simple, however, and Kirra realises that people can be haunted in more ways than one.
