“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.

Mary Downing Hahn’s many acclaimed novels include such beloved ghost stories as Wait Till Helen Comes, Deep and Dark and Dangerous, and Took. A former librarian, she has received more than fifty child-voted state awards for her work. She lives in Columbia, Maryland, with a cat named Nixi.

"Hahn’s story is characteristically steeped in eerie atmosphere, and the novel’s blend of historical drama, the supernatural, and the intricacies of adolescent friendship is a gripping combination." —PW "Hahn is a veteran author who clearly knows her apples about writing ghost stories, as this, her latest inventive page-turner, evidences... Shivers aplenty, but also genuine emotion that will invite empathy." — Booklist "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
