This graveyard hides buried dolls...and buried secrets!

The house at Cinder Creek hides many secrets. Shelby and Brian Tate have heard heated voices crying out in the night. They've noticed the unsettling way things move around on their own. But the most chilling thing about their new home is the cemetery someone's built out back. The graves are tiny, only big enough for dolls.


Soon Shelby's learning all about them. Betsy Anne's angelic appearance hides a raging fire behind her eyes, while Baby Daisy changes faces as quickly as she changes moods. And Miss Amelia's cracked porcelain skin and twisted lips only hint at the pain she once endured at the hands of a very angry girl. If Shelby can help the dolls find peace, she and her family might actually be happy at Cinder Creek. But if she can't--the dolls will have their revenge....

      I liked the part where the girl said that " Mom plants a kiss on her walnut face!"(the grandmother). The grand mom is about to die.

                This is a creepy book, with dolls and such. Shelby Tate and her brother Brian have divorced parents, and when their mother's aunt passes away, the key to the creepy house at Cinder Creek is theirs. They find it unsettling how things move around on their own, but what is most frightening is the little doll sized graves in the backyard. And the dolls won't stay buried.
