Athena Gray lives vicariously through her sister because people in general avoid her. Whether it's strange things like dead butterflies fluttering to life, or the time she saved her dying grandpa just by willing him to live, Athena knows that she is different. The only person who doesn't seem to think so is Dan, the most popular boy on Omega High School's baseball team. But even Dan can't understand the reason she acts haunted, until a spirit roaming the local historic burial mounds takes an interest in people Athena cares about.
Resolved to protect her sister and her best friend, Dan, Athena pays no attention to strange events at school until they follow her home. When a mysterious spirit causes a near fatal accident she must come to grips with an angry and jealous ghost who wants her dead, because somewhere between this life and another Athena's adversary thinks she cheated.
