Product Details


Daniel’s tale is a sturdy coming-of-age narrative . . .The strength of Hogan’s complexly drawn relationships grounds readers in this unique and eerie sort-of ghost story.
—The Horn Book

A teen spends a harrowing week at an English holiday sports complex, where he befriends the ghost of a young woman doomed to repeat the last brutal hours of her life. . . .Lexi’s appropriately quirky and enigmatic, while Daniel’s a vulnerable, likable (but unlikely) hero, whose confidence grows through his sympathetic, quasi-romantic encounter; his first-person narration adds immediacy and resonance. An intriguing ghost story.
—Kirkus Reviews

This is a well-paced and emotionally effective tale, and fans of the recent narrated-from-beyond books will appreciate seeing things from the point of view of those left behind.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Hogan not only delivers chills galore but also creates empathy for his cast of vulnerable, idiosyncratic people with their own desires to change the past. The disturbing undertone to the plastic fun of Leisure World provides a nice atmospheric counterpart for this unusual ghost story.

The book succeeds in being creepy and atmospheric.
—School Library Journal

This novel will appeal to teens on many levels. It is not only a riveting mystery and a spine-tingling ghost story, it also deftly explores real-life trauma faced by young people.
