User Summary: You are called on to babysit for a 2-year-old girl named Katie. She behaves strangely.
Jordashebasics's Thoughts:

With a title like this, my expectations were low. For the most part, the book is a bit strange, but it still remains grounded in the way that Packard's books tend to be.

It turns out that Katie is legitimately haunted. A spirit is possessing her, and it seems to want to pass itself onto you.

A few of the paths lead to some of the normal Packard cleverness. There's one ending where it was all a dream, and you can choose to go back to the start of the babysitting gig. There's a sequence where you and Katie are playing inside a dollhouse, shrinking down... it's a strange bit, but it's much more interesting than some of the other bits.

So far, it's a middle-of-the-road book for the Nightmare line. Not terribly bad, but not terribly good.
