A fun, funny ghost story about a nobody kid who becomes a somebody while helping a ghost right a wrong from the past.
Cooper Vega’s family moves so often that he’s practically invisible at any school he attends. When his parents move him to a new town and get him a fancy new phone, the weird glare starts to take on the form of . . . a person? It’s a boy named Roderick, who says he lived in the time of William Shakespeare. Cooper thinks his phone has gone haywire, but there’s nothing he can do to get rid of Roderick. Then, even stranger, Roderick starts helping him.
