Ghosts At Drayson Schoolhouse – Rick Suttle

Three teen paranormal investigators, Dylan, Mike and Sarah McCauliffe, are hired to investigate the ghostly hauntings at Drayson Schoolhouse, an old building in a rural Ohio town that’s been around since the 1860s. Seventeen year-old Dylan is the camera and equipment expert, who captures ghost sightings and voices, while his fifteen year-old brother Mike researches the history of haunted locations. But neither can solve the mysteries surrounding the hauntings without their thirteen year-old sister Sarah, a psychic medium who sees and speaks with the dead.

It’s early June and Drayson’s secretary, Joyce Fletcher, begs the three teenagers to take the case. She’s desperate to stop a series of hauntings before the school year starts in August, because parents are threatening to yank their kids from the school and send them elsewhere. But the hauntings have gotten worse since construction workers started remodeling. Water faucets go on and off when nobody’s around, lights flicker and people are getting shoved by invisible forces. One worker even got pushed off a ladder. Worst of all, people are scared to death of the dozen or more ghosts they’re seeing.

The kids start their all-night investigation on a Sunday night. They turn the lights out and use night-vision goggles, magnetic field and motion detectors, cameras and recorders to search and communicate with the ghosts. After getting chased by a large male spirit and pursued by another, they soon discover nine child ghosts in the basement who’ve been in the school for many decades. Sarah and her brothers struggle to determine what’s causing the hauntings and how to help the innocent spirits move on. But a much more evil entity lurks in the darkness and tries to ruin their plans. Can the three siblings survive the investigation, get rid of the evil spirit and help the innocent ones move on?
