Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Willa is freaking out. Lately it seems she's seeing things. Like a dead body in her swimming pool. Frantic, scribbled messages on her walls. A reflection that is not her own. It's almost as if someone or something is trying to send her a message. Meanwhile a killer is stalking Los Angeles; a killer who re-enacts famous movie murder scenes with his victims: pretty teenage girls. Could Willa's strange visions have to do with these unsolved murders? All Willa knows is she has to confront the possible ghost in her house, or she might just lose her mind. And if she doesn't untangle the mystery of the Hollywood Killer... she might just lose her life.

High-schooler Willa has just moved to California with her mother and film director stepfather, and she will be attending a private school--but her real problem is that she keeps seeing things that are not really there, like a dead body in the swimming pool, and her visions may be connected to a serial killer that is stalking young girls in Hollywood.

Horn Book Review

Willa's new stepfather's Hollywood mansion is haunted--and the ghost has something to tell her. Meanwhile, with the help of a cute classmate, Willa investigates the murders of the "Hollywood Killer," who arranges victims in famous movie tableaux. Astute readers may guess the identity of the killer, but they'll still be on edge throughout in this unnerving supernatural page-turner. (c) Copyright 2015.
