Description

Sixth-grader Allie Nichols has always had an active imagination. But the day she goes hunting for rock specimens at Fossil Glen, it runs away with her. She is climbing a steep cliff, when she becomes trapped on a ledge. Frozen with fear, she is unable to move. But suddenly she feels a presence, and a soothing girl's voice guides her down the crumbling rocks to safety. When Allie shares her experience, her best friends call her a liar. And she can't tell her parents; they would only worry about her. But Allie knows the voice was real. Who is the girl? Could she be a ghost? Award-winning author Cynthia DeFelice creates not only a gripping supernatural murder mystery, but an examination of true friendship as well. Young adults will feel icy chills running up and down their spine as Christina Moore leads them through Allie's exciting adventures.

Professional reviews

"DeFelice's sixth-grade protagonist, Allie, is clearly in possession of the risk-taking gene discovered by molecular geneticists and popularized in news magazines last year. She's a monumental risk taker, in fact. The one-hundred-foot shale cliffs of Fossil Glen beckon to her; she is driven to ignore her parents' warnings to stay away. Christina Moore is the perfect match for Allie. She captures Allie's intensity of emotion, her feelings of estrangement from her peers, and her guts in the face of supernatural voices, ghostly encounters--and extreme danger. The strength of Moore's reading lies in her ability to capture the nuances of the adolescent personality, Allie's animation, her best friend Karen's aloof psuedosophistication, her buddy Dub's open and eager acceptance of startling events.
