A Curious Tale of the In-Between

 by Lauren DeStefano


Pram is a very special little girl. After a traumatic birth she is able to see ghosts; she is an orphan living with her aunts in the retirement home they run and a bit lonely. Her only friend is a ghost. Once she is forced to attend school she does manage to make friends with a boy whose mother had passed away. He asks for help to find his mother's ghost, not knowing that Pram would know if her ghost was around. Their quest leads them to an unscrupulous medium who recognizes Pram's unique ability and is determined to exploit it. The book was hard to put down. The compelling story and likeable characters are sure to make this your new favorite.
