Baton Rouge is a place that is known for its rich history, but it’s also known for its spirits. From the moment Tyler and her step-father, Noah, moved into the large abandoned house that was once a plantation, she knew that they weren’t alone. The sounds of footsteps in an empty hall, laughter when there was no one there, and the dark shadow that would appear made her a believer. Are they the trapped spirits of the slaves that once worked the land, or is it a demon with a deeper, more sinister purpose that had been waiting patiently for Tyler to seek its revenge for sins done long ago?
The more she tries to convince Noah that there’s something going on, the more he demands for her to mind her own business.

The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements
Why did Gandhi hate iodine (I, 53)? How did radium (Ra, 88) nearly ruin Marie Curie’s reputation? And why is gallium (Ga, 31) the go-to element for laboratory pranksters?*
The Periodic Table is a crowning scientific achievement, but it’s also a treasure trove of adventure, betrayal, and obsession. These fascinating tales follow every element on the table as they play out their parts in human history, and in the lives of the (frequently) mad scientists who discovered them. THE DISAPPEARING SPOON masterfully fuses science with the classic lore of invention, investigation, and discovery–from the Big Bang through the end of time.
