Product Details


One of CCBC’S Best Books for Kids & Teens (2018)

“[A] cleverly constructed, compellingly paced mystery that’s part time-slip story, part ghost story, part meditation on the power of dreaming. . . . Full of emotional truth and connection.” —Kirkus Reviews

“3/4… [T]he mounting tension between Claire and Maisie is painfully believable… Highly recommended.” —CM Magazine

“Readers will connect with the characters and fall into the storyline with its focus on artists, loss, and family relationships… Recommended.” —School Library Connection

“Moody and atmospheric… the story unfolds at exactly the right pace and is a delicately nuanced tale of secrets, shadows of the past, family ties, heartache and healing.” —Atlantic Books Today
