Booklist - 03/01/2019 Clio is (mostly) positive she and her friends sealed the portal to the Nightmare Realm; but, as she begins her new babysitting job in the town's old Victorian mansion, she questions their success. She doesn't want a repeat of her last experience, when she had to call her BFFs to help her out. Her new charge, Minna, is a delightful girl, but Clio suspects the house is haunted. For example, the old clock in the hallway stops ticking when she touches it and chimes whenever she walks by. Furthermore, each time she stays with Minna, something strange happens. Clio's fear grows and she finally engages the help of her friends and Ethan, a new boy in their class. A visit to the library reveals that one of the twin daughters of the mansion's original inhabitants went missing, leading the kids to determine that the spirit of one twin is seeking the other. But which one? And can they help? Shepherd's second entry in the Babysitting Nightmares series is not as creepy as the first, but is just spooky enough, especially around Halloween. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
