Synopsis

Using a span of years from 1853 to 2012, the life stories of nine deceased teenagers are shared with a teenage cemetery visitor. These teenagers want their life stories to be heard by someone who will care and that listening heart would be Mike, a young teenager who is dealing with his own youthful problems. Distracted by their stories, Mike begins to understand and appreciate their life stories and the messages each teenager wants to leave in the world. An author's note explains the fascination with ghost stories, the origins of each ghost story and the power of imagination.
