  • About the Edition

    October Schwartz is hot on the trail of the person (or persons) responsible for Morna MacIsaac"s death in 1914--or as hot as one can be on a 100-year-old trail--when her living friend Yumi finds herself the target of harassment at school. The intrepid heroine in black eyeliner and her ghost friends sleuth their way through a mystery featuring a blizzard of suffragettes, ice-skating disasters, mystical telephones, and the Titanic, set against a backdrop of Yuletide pandemonium.

Raising the dead kids the first time was obviously an accident, but discovering the rules governing their raising and their limitations is fun for the reader as well as being imaginatively conceived.

Second, October, Yumi, and Stacey are victims of a hate crime, and the question is Martz had replaced Mr. Oh, and there are a bunch of dead kids hanging out in the cemetery behind her house, and only October can see them.

But I didn't like his tone. Solving dual concurrent mysteries at once won't be easy, but the intrepid heroine in black eyeliner loves a challenge.

That said, it was her first day at Sticksville Central High School, and she sort of wished she were dead. I especially love the romance I sense or perhaps wish for beginning to develop between Yumi and Stacey go, Stacey, go!
