  • Interest Level: Grade 7 - Grade 12   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 8

Nora Reilly is an old soul. Her idea of fun is reading a Jane Austen novel in her family’s Victorian home. She didn’t expect to find a kindred spirit in the house’s oldest occupant, Tom Barnes. Tom is a sweet and handsome boy who died over a hundred years ago. His soul is trapped in the house, and he’s not alone. There are other mysterious tenants . . . and darker shadows, sinister and nameless.

Does love stand a ghost of a chance against such odds? Nora’s friends aren’t so sure. They think she should give up the ghost and look for a boyfriend who is a little more lively. But Nora will do whatever it takes to make the relationship work, even against the threat of meddling ghost hunters, snooping psychics, and the worst danger of all to her first solid relationship—her parents.

“The easy-to-follow black-and-white panels are drawn with a loose, expressive realism that effectively captures the plot’s droll and eerie turns.” —Kirkus Reviews
