“Another historical and chilling success” of revenge from beyond the grave during the 1918 influenza outbreak from ghost story master Mary Downing Hahn. (Kirkus)

“The novel’s blend of historical drama, the supernatural, and the intricacies of adolescent friendship is a gripping combination.” —Publishers Weekly

“Hahn clearly knows her apples about writing ghost stories.” —Booklist

“Another historical and chilling success.” —Kirkus Reviews

Against the ominous backdrop of the 1918 influenza epidemic, new girl Annie is claimed as best friend by Elsie, the tattletale, liar, and thief of the class. But Annie would rather spend time with the other girls, since Elsie is so mean. When Elsie dies of influenza, Annie thinks she’s free of her torment—until the bully returns to reclaim Annie’s friendship and take revenge.

"Another historical and chilling success."—Kirkus

"Another solid addition to Hahn’s oeuvre, this would also make a spine-chilling pair with Cohen’s The Doll’s Eye."—Bulletin
