A girl who dies in a freak storm becomes a poltergeist in this smart, darkly funny middle grade ghost story perfect for fans of Shouting At the Rain.
Frances—you can call her Frankie—was not a happy baby. She was born amidst chaos, to two loving but unprepared parents. On a beach. In a storm. No wonder she’s always had a temper.
And you know what did nothing to quell her anger? Dying, dramatically, in a freak natural disaster that wiped out her whole town.
As a ghost, it’s not so easy for Frankie to hide her rage, especially when suspicious visitors to her ruined home seem to have a keen and ominous interest in her. But when you were born with a storm inside you, sometimes the only way to calm it is to finally let it out.
The sinister eeriness of Doll Bones meets the dark humor of Lemony Snicket in this smart middle grade ghost story.
