Grade 6-8-Sabine, the teen whose psychic visions caused uproar at her high school in Don't Die, Dragonfly
(Llewellyn, 2004), is back. This time, she travels with her new goth friend to Pine Peaks, CA, to procure an old remedy book that may save her grandmother's life. Even before the trip, a dancing girl named Chloe who falls off of a cliff haunts the protagonist's dreams. Once Sabine and Thorn arrive in Pine Peaks, the haunting becomes more vivid and urgent, causing Sabine to realize that she must help this lonely ghost rest in peace. This diversion has closure by the end, but the original reason for the quest is left open-ended for the next installment. While rather slow at the beginning, the pace quickens after a few short chapters, revealing a novel that is simple yet interesting enough to recommend to reluctant readers. The story itself, as well as most of the writing, is average for its genre, although a few sections are quite poetic and help reinforce the eerie mood. Purchase where mysteries and paranormal tales are in demand.-Jessi Platt, Auburn Public Library, AL
