Among the Ghosts

Illustrated by: Sina Grace
For Ages: 8 - 12
The New Newbridge Academy has a strange, storied history and a gothic atmosphere, and since Noh’s aunt is a teacher there, it’s where Noh will be spending the summer while her father travels for work.

She is the only “realie” who can see them—and, now that the ghosts have started to disappear, the only one who can save them.
