From PEN Award-winning author Carol Lynch Williams comes a "haunting read" (Booklist) in this coming-of-age tale about a girl who can talk to the dead-even if she would rather not. Evie Messenger knows that her family is different from other families. But it isn't until her fifteenth birthday that the Messenger gift is revealed to her. Evie has the family's gift-a special power. Soon she realizes she is able to see and talk to the dead-ghosts-often with no idea who the person was. Or as Evie says: "I see Dead People. It's a Messenger gift." That doesn't necessarily mean she wants the Messenger gift. So Evie tries to ignore it but soon she finds she cannot. Can Evie find a way to live her life without letting her power take over?And what if the dead person is someone close to Evie's family?
