The hilarious tale of a family coming to terms with its ghosts - literally.
Greta Woebegone did not believe in ghosts until the day she was knocked over by a car and almost died. Then everything changed...
Now Greta can not only see the spirits that haunt her ancestral home, she can talk to them too - from her grumpy Grandpa Woebegone and Percy the poo-pushing plague victim to the sinister spook in the cellar.
Can Greta help the ghosts avoid being exorcised (a fate worse than undeath)?
Can the ghosts help Greta stop her beloved Grandma being put in a home?
And can they all help each other overcome the pain in their past that's holding them back from the future?
