Summary
In the summer of 1990, fourteen-year-old Trevor Riddell gets his first glimpse of Riddell House. Trevor's bankrupt parents have begun a trial separation, and his father, Jones Riddell, has brought Trevor to Riddell House for the summer with the goal of selling off the house and property for development into "tract housing for millionaires." But Trevor soon discovers there's someone else living in Riddell House: a ghost with an agenda of his own. As he uncovers secrets of his family's past that are hidden deep within the house, guided by the whisperings of the ghost, Trevor discovers a legacy of family trauma and terrible guilt
Summary
Garth Stein has given us a masterpiece. This beautiful story takes readers on a thrilling exploration of a family estate brimming with generations of riveting Riddell family ghosts and secrets. This is a true exploratory novel, taking readers through secret passageways, hidden rooms, and darkened corridors that engage all of the senses. -- Whitney Gayle for LibraryReads
