Allie Nicholas is a sixth grader with the ability to see ghosts. A few weeks after helping the ghost of a young girl solve a murder, Allie is approached by another spirit to do the same for him. Allie's class is doing a project for Elder's Day that involves interviewing an older person. The ghost encourages her to pick Mrs. Hobbs, a woman who works in the school cafeteria, as the subject of her project. Although every child in the school is afraid of Mrs. Hobbs, Allie agrees to do it if it will help lay the ghost to rest. Soon, everywhere Allie goes, fires start suspiciously. This new ghost appears to be a handsome young man in need of help, but Allie learns that ghosts are not always what they seem to be. Award-winning author Cynthia DeFelice continues the story begun in The Ghost of Fossil Glen. Narrator Christina Moore perfectly captures Allie's confusion and determination as a normal girl dealing with supernatural problems.

"DeFelice's heroine from THE GHOST OF FOSSIL GLEN is back! In this adventure, a smooth-talking ghost has evidence about a fire, possibly started by the same person whom Allie Nicholas is interviewing for her Elder's Day project at school. Allie is faced with the problems of how to determine Mrs. Hobbs's true role in the event and, as before, how much of her ghost visions to share with other people. Christina Moore's pacing heightens the suspense of each unfolding event, slowing for emphasis and speeding with the pounding of Allie's heart as her dreams and her real life become equally frightening. Moore's light, eager voice suits the persona of a perplexed and determined sixth-grader. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
