"A touching tale for readers who prefer character-driven ghost stories with the merest dashes of eeriness."
"As pieces of the puzzle begin to fit into place, tension rises at a steady pitch before exploding in a dramatic climax. A spine-tingler with staying power."
From the Publisher
Jess was happy when her family lived by the bay, but something is wrong with their new house. Since her family moved, her sister Vida has become wild and furious and believes in all kinds of strange magic. Her brother Clem is so preoccupied he hasn't even unpacked. | Their mother is lying sick in her bedroom upstairs and refuses to talk or come out, which is getting on Vida's nerves. The ghost begins to appear to Jess--at first as a fast blur in the corner of her eye, then as the swish of invisible legs keeping step with her own, and the skin-crawling feeling that someone is watching. Who is this ghost and with whom does she want to communicate?
Editors Note 1
Guilty over their older brother's drowning and their mother's subsequent breakdown, fourteen-year-old Vida ventures into the occult but it is ten-year-old Jess who meets the ghost who is trying to help them.
