INTERMEDIATE FICTION
(2) 4-6 When Trace, who has terrifying flashbacks to the car accident that killed his parents, researches a school history project at the New York Public Library, the ghost of a tearful little boy fixates on him. The project leads Trace to the horrific 1863 burning of the Colored Orphan Asylum and to connections with his life. This suspenseful and well-paced offering strikes a solid balance between ghost story and school story, past and present.
