PRAISE FOR The Ghost Road: 

Cotter’s complex and engrossing story is enhanced by its superbly presented isolated Newfoundland setting and a satisfying dose of ghosts.” –Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

 “The windswept shores of Newfoundland and the Irish folklore add just enough mystique to the setting, making this a winning choice for readers looking for a mystery with a chilly atmosphere but a happy ending” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Cotter’s story is as coloured with the culture of her setting as it is with the drama of visions, storms and plot twists.” –Toronto Star

“A must-read for adventure seekers!” —School Library Connection

“[A] story about shared family trauma . . . . steeped in a chilling mystery that esteems its middle-grade readers.” —Booklist

“Readers with an interest in ghosts will be enthralled by this fast-paced story that combines the enchantment of old-time Newfoundland with some spine-chilling drama.” —Resource Links

“[A] delightful ghost story full of mystery and intrigue, with just the right amount of creepiness.” —CM Magazine 

“[A] subtle and effective account of empowerment and strength.” —Quill & Quire

“Be prepared to stay up all night with a flashlight, as you will find it hard to stop reading this suspenseful story.” —The Telegram (Newfoundland and Labrador)
