Theme/Main Idea
I think the main idea to the story is don't be nosy... or else you will end up with trouble. For example: After the gang solved the ghostly mystery Neil ended up almost dying 3 times.
Recommendations
The weak points are very few but, romance, in some parts detail and comedy. The strong points would be Horror, suspense, action,and drama. I suggest teens to adults because there is so much suspense and scary moments that make your heart uncontrollably drop and come back up. Yes i would recommend this book because I LOVE thrillers and the feeling suspense. Also i read the comments on the back and was curious!
Real World Connections
I think this book definitely has a connection to the world because there is a lot of curious people who do stupid things like this because of the curiosity, which is a dangerous thing.

Rising Action: they enter the abandoned insane asylum of Graylock hall in the town of Hedston when they come back they found out they are being haunted no matter where they go by a ghost named Rebecca smith seeking vengeance and thy're her only hope if achieving it.
