Pram Bellamy is special--she can talk to ghosts. She doesn't have too many friends amongst the living, but that's all right. She has her books, she has her aunts, and she has her best friend, the ghostly Felix. Then Pram meets Clarence, a boy from school who has also lost a parent and is looking for answers. Together they arrive at the door of the mysterious Lady Savant, who promises to help. But this spiritualist knows the true nature of Pram's power, and what she has planned is more terrifying than any ghost. New York Times bestselling author Lauren DeStefano is beloved by critics and readers alike, and her middle grade debut is lyrical, evocative and not to be missed.show more

Review quote

"I dare you not to fall in love with Pram, a young heroine who is as gutsy as she is compassionate. Lauren DeStefano has created a touching and unforgettable glimpse into the world of the spirits." --Ellen Potter, author of the Olivia Kidney series and "The Humming Room ""Anyone who's ever wanted to unravel a family mystery with the help of two friends--one living and one dead--will be charmed by this tale and its plucky heroine, Pram. Early in the story, Felix the ghost tells us the living are never happy where they are. But I couldn't have been happier while reading about Pram and her desire to be someone's daughter. Hope there are more adventures to come from Pram and her pals." --Kate Klise, author of "Dying to Meet You " "[A] harrowing debut . . . . DeStefano has an observant eye." --"Publishers Weekly," starred review, on "Wither""[A] concoction of tension and love with a cliff-hanger ending." --"School Library Journal," starred review, on "The Internment Chronicles Book 1: Perfect Ruin " "DeStefano has created a perfect storm--intertwining plot, characters, and setting beautifully. . . . This is a page-turner, and waiting for the next book will be hard, hard, hard." --"Booklist," starred review, on "The Internment Chronicles Book 1: Perfect Ruin "show more
