Amy has enough to deal with for one lifetime: a superstitious Chinese mother, a best friend whose mood changes as dramatically as her hair colour and a reputation at high school for being weird. The last thing she needs is to be haunted by Logan, a ghost from the 80s. He could be dangerous. He might also be Amy's dream boy.
