And maybe be noticed by a boy. But while at school a very violent ghost haunts her every move and her teachers and classmates notice her for all the wrong reasons. Because of her inappropriate and strange behaviors, Chloe earns herself one-way ticket to the Lyle House, a home for disturbed teenagers.
