From the Publisher:
There are ghosts at Bird Lake, and they're haunting Mitch Sinclair and Spencer Stone. Not the Halloween kind, but ghosts of the past. Memories of how life was beforebefore the divorce, before the accident. Can their ghosts bring Mitch and Spencer together, as friends? Or will their secrets keep them apart?
Either way, it is a summer that neither Mitch nor Spencer will ever forget.
Capturing summertime silence and the even deeper quiet of two boys from fractured families, acclaimed children's author and illustrator Kevin Henkes has created another stunning middle grade novel. Twelve-year-old Mitch is struggling to understand his parents' divorce while fighting boredom at his grandparents' lake house, while at ten, Spencer is on a family trip filled with haunted memories. The two befriend each other, and slowly forge a friendship that helps each of them begin to recover.
