Amy is terrified. She hears scratching and scurrying noises coming from the dollhouse, and the dolls she was playing with are not where she left them. Dolls can't move by themselves, she tells herself. But every night when Amy goes into the attic to check on the dollhouse, it is flled with an eerie light and the dolls have moved again! Are the dolls trying to tell her something? Are their movements connected to the grisly murders of her own great-grandparents? In a spine-chilling climax, Amy and her sister unravel the secrets of the petrifying dollhouse murders.
