Sophie knew that Jay shouldn’t have messed with an ouija board, and now Jay is dead. Still reeling from grief, Sophie visits her cousins on a remote island in Scotland. However, grief lives there as well, centered around the horrible death that Sophie’s cousin Rebecca suffered years ago, a death that the family refuses to face. Now, Sophie seems to have brought Rebecca’s ghost back to the house on the island, and the Frozen Charlotte dolls know she has returned. Accidents follow the family, and Sophie investigates Rebecca’s death, since she is sure that it is connected to Jay’s. And every night, the Frozen Charlotte dolls in Rebecca’s room scratch at the glass of their cabinet and whisper to be let out, to play murderous games with Sophie. In the end, Sophie avenges Rebecca’s death and rescues her own family from the Frozen Charlotte dolls.
