There's a ghost in their new house. Clem can see her, and she's starting to appear to Jess. But what is she doing there, and who does she want? A ghostly thriller with an unexpected ending.

Jess was happy when they lived by the bay, but something is wrong with their new house. Since they moved, Vida is wild and furious and believes in all kinds of strange magic. Clem hasn't even unpacked, and their mum is lying sick and silent in the room upstairs. And Jess can feel someone following her, invisible legs quietly keeping step.

Starry Nights is a haunting mystery of a family caught in a twilight zone.
