Have you ever seen a face hidden in the bark of a tree and known that the man inside wanted to hurt you?
This was a wonderful juvenile mystery about an 11-year-old who moves to Connecticut with his father and new stepmother and encounter ghosts left behind after a terrible accident as well as dealing with some different ghosts from Zack's past. It has been getting accolades from librarians and reviewers and is deserving of such. It was a quick read with interesting characters and dynamic character relationships.
