Publisher's Summary

There's no escaping the spirits of Stony Harbor. 

Sophia Keegan is 14 years old in 1930s Massachusetts. She likes the dark, and she craves adventure and freedom from social constraints. But when she meets a ghostly child on a beach and stumbles onto a dangerous bootlegging gang, it isn't long before she's fighting to save her family and her sanity. 

Now Sophia must protect her family from the deadly gang of rum runners who will stop at nothing to silence her. And she must uncover the riddle of the ghostly child who haunts her dreams and invades her thoughts before it is too late - before the rum runners kill her or the ghost drives her to madness. 

This audiobook is perfect for fans of Janet Taylor Lisle's Black Duck, Mary Downing Hahn's Wait Till Helen Comes: A Ghost Story, and Richard Peck's A River Between Us.

A fun mystery and coming of age story


I enjoyed the way the author combined elements of mystery, crime story components, super natural occurrences, historical settings, and coming of age experiences into an entertaining tale. I’d recommend this book to young adults and adults alike. A worthwhile read.

Good read

The story was well written and easy to follow. I like the overarching theme of the story: resiliency of people. Though difficult and painful things happen in life it doesn’t mean life must forever be marred by the past.
