From New York Times bestselling author Lauren DeStefano comes a gorgeous tale of friendship found and fought for against a haunting danger. It's just right for fans of Serafina and the Black Cloak .

Lionel is a wild boy, who doesn't much like to be around other people. He'd rather be a purring cat or a wolf stalking the woods.

Marybeth is a nice girl. She doesn't need to be told to comb her hair or brush her teeth, and she's kind to everyone at the orphanage . . . Lionel most of all.

Different though they are, Lionel and Marybeth are best friends in a world that has forgotten about them. So when a mysterious blue spirit possesses Marybeth-and starts to take control-they know they must stop it before the real Marybeth fades away forever.

This is the good book and I enjoyed it reading part by part each day. This is what my 9 years old said after completing this book, it's a nice read.

A quick read good for early and reluctant readers. A quietly, sad and mysterious story of girl possessed by a ghost. At an orphanage, a girl and boy best friends, have an adventure. I rather enjoyed the development of characters. Good pacing with a practical storyline despite the supernatural involvements. Give to ones who like a good ghost story that isn't scary

A mysterious blue light lures Marybeth into the forest. Spooky and satisfying!
