“It was just after dusk when the accident happened.”
Absorbed in a book, Jack, a ninth grade prodigy of classic mythology fails to see the car that knocks him down. He’s physically okay, but after the accident he sees ghostly beings. In New York City’s subway, he meets Euri, a spectral girl who leads him eight stories below Grand Central Station, and together they enter the residence of hundreds of ghosts. The spirits, several dead for more than 200 years, are suspicious of Jack, because to them he appears to be alive. Is Jack actually dead? If so, will he be able to locate his mother who disappeared years before?
This was one of those books where the cover just kept calling to me. When I finally picked it up, I was not at all disappointed. This book uses a lot of mythology references, but even if you don’t know a lot about mythology, you will be intrigued by the storyline and characters. This is a cool story centered around death and the afterlife. – Jessica, Teen Librarian
