Invisible Ghosts

Robyn Schneider. HarperCollins/Tegen, $17.99 (320p) ISBN 978-0-06-256808-3
Since the death of her older brother, Logan, high school junior Rose has withdrawn from her drama-crowd friends. Her solitary behavior isn’t due to grieving, though; it’s because she always hurries home from school to meet a visitor: Logan’s ghost, who is invisible to everyone else. Rose loves her brother, but four years of keeping his presence a secret and doing his favorite activities (mostly watching endless reruns of Dr. Who) have taken their toll, making her acutely aware of her loneliness. She feels it most sharply after her childhood friend Jamie moves back to town. Just as their mutual affection takes a romantic turn, Rose makes a startling discovery: Jamie is in tune with the supernatural world as well. In a story about letting go and courageously moving forward, Schneider (The Beginning of Everything) makes the paranormal seem plausible. Readers will readily suspend their disbelief to see how Rose, a relatable heroine, deals with an apparition who grows increasingly bothersome while trying to pursue a meaningful relationship with the boy she loves. Ages 13–up. Agent: Merrilee Heifetz, Writers House. (June)
