The Darcy twins are nothing alike, Lacey is a foot taller and her brother Charlie is a foot wider. Their father is dead and they live with their mother who is poor. One day they receive a letter that a distant relative is dead and that they have inherited. They hop on a plan to England to go the creepy Blaxston Manor. A ghost gives them a bottle and Charlie opens it to learn that he his great-uncle’s curse has been passed on to him. Each night he has to sleep in water or he will shrivel up and die until he has the courage to face the ghost in the attic. The twins must learn about the curse and how to get rid of it. Children looking for a comical or light horror tale will happily get lost in the pages. EL – ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
