A YA Ghost Story

The lighthouse keeper takes a two-week vacation every summer, and the town holds a lottery to see who will replace him. Past candidates have either disappeared, died, or come back not quite right, so there hasn’t been a volunteer for decades. Until Jake. After reading about the job opportunity in the county paper, Jake applies. Angry at the world, seventeen-year-old Jake is sure that two weeks living in the lighthouse can’t be worse than what he has to endure at home. Besides, the town is offering a thousand dollars, free meals delivered, and a mostly quiet place to stay. Jake is sure this will be the cushiest job he’s ever had.
