One summer night in the town of Hell, Ariel Donovan's best friend goes missing. Everyone else believes Jenna ran away, but Ariel thinks something more sinister may have happened. She dreams of Jenna running to the abandoned orphanage in town, and then the building catching on fire. What does the orphanage have to do with Jenna's disappearance? When strange sights and sounds start plaguing Ariel, she is determined to find out.
With the help of two newcomers to town, she begins to untangle the secrets that Hell is hiding, while trying to navigate the bullies and questionable authority figures in school. Quirky artist Theo, with a penchant for spying, and handsome, charming Henry Rhodes, who doesn't believe in ghosts, join her in her hunt to uncover the truth. But it may be worse than she feared.
