Plot summary

When George becomes possessed by the ghost of Tiffany Hudson, the crew visits George's mother, who asks the girls to turn down the music because "your sister's fighting off a ghost." Ted emerges and excitedly asks, "Can I see?" George asks her to go braid Jessie's hair, and Ted sighs and walks off, but she returns to hear more of what's going on.[1]

To communicate with the ghost of Lucy Sable, George suggests using Ted's dragon toy, which Ted volunteers in return for five things, and she hands Nancy the list of things. After the crew does the seance, a ghost is still attached to the toy, and Ted begins talking to it as she colors in her coloring book.[2] The next day, Ted stays in the store room at The Claw when someone unseen arrives, and Ted goes missing.[3]

The next morning, George contacts Nancy, Bess, and Nick to help find her sister. Nancy realizes Ted has been kidnapped because the case is reminiscent of a 6-year-old kidnapping case Nancy solved involving Nathan Gomber. Chief McGinnis issues an Amber Alert and the whole town gets involved for the search. Following the clues, they discover that Moira Baker kidnapped Ted in an attempt to sacrifice her to the ghost Simon, and George and Nick find Ted being held at Baker's parents' antique shop.[4]
