From the Back Cover:

A GHOST STORY -- with a Difference

Theo has a hard life with her young, selfish mother. That's why she's always dreamed of belonging to a real family -- mother, father, sisters, brothers. Her dream seems to come true when she is mysteriously "adopted" by a large, warm family, the Kaldors. For the first time, Theo has brand-new clothes, things of her own, security, and good friends. But, as time passes, the magic of Theo's new life begins to fade -- really fade. In fact, Theo herself is vanishing....
