Quotes


1."School started a week later and so did Abby's dreams. She thought at first, that it must be all the changes in her life. New house, new room, new classes. By the time Abby learned the true cause of the dreams, it was way too late..."pg.134

2." She watched as her mother and Erin helped Holly up, heard her mother say she'd take her home. She watched it all, but at the same time she was remembering..."pg.139

3."It looked like a coffin, Abby thought, as she slammed down the lid and pushed the shiny, brass catch in place. A stain-lined coffin for a doll..." pg.147

I chose these quotes because they leave you with suspense and carving for more. To want to know the truth...-Paula RP 2015

Summary

Abby, a 16 year old girl, moves to her new house along with her 10 yr old sister and divorced mom (Denna). In their first day there, Abby volunteered to do the attic. She didn't know why but she felt like she needed to go up there. While she was cleaning, she found a box, and inside the box, she found an ancient doll that had a lilac dress and a beautiful china face. At first Abby thought she saw hatred in the dolls eyes, but shrugged it off. HUGE mistake. A week later Abby starts to get wired dreams. She thought it was because of the whole new house and school thing, but her guess was way far from the truth. Abby's friend, Erin, spent a night over at her house, and Erin was the first victim. She woke up to get a glass of water when all of the sudden something, caused her to fall down the stairs almost breaking her neck. The second victim was Holly, Abby's and Erin's friend. The three of them were studying when suddenly, the chandelier fell on top of Holly almost completely crushing her. All Abby could do was stare. The third victim was her sister, Lindsay, when she was sleeping in her tree house, that's when it unexpectedly caught on fire. They took her to the hospital right away. The doctors said she was lucky cause she could have burned to death. The fifth and last victim was Mark, Abby's crush, who asked her out to go on a date on Saturday. The night before their date, Friday, Abby had another dream. She woke up sweating and screaming. When the big day finally came, Mark never showed up. So she decided to call to see what was going up, but when she called, his mom had told her that he died in a car accident while he was driving home from a friends house. That's when she realised the truth of what was behind all those tragic events. She found that out when she remembered the dream she had on Friday, that's when she saw a little girl, a little china faced girl running in the road. Abby immediately took the doll and put her back in her box. Abby drove to the edge of a cliff and threw the box and waited till she didn't see it anymore. Then she went back home. Months later, a man found the box and took it with him thinking that he would give the doll to his niece.
