"The characters will quickly find their way into your heart and stay there..."

A Novel of... Love, Life, & Family

A BoySixteen-year-old Aaron Wade. With his “second strike” with leukemia in remission and his health restored, the summer of 1977 feels like a turning point… until he starts to see a ghost in the Cedar City, Utah graveyard.

A Girl. Seventeen-year-old Helena Monfort. She grew up too early, the tough girl with a bad reputation that just needs a friend.

A Ghost. Lionel Malak. A simple man, he doesn’t understand why someone would murder him, but longs for justice so his spirit can rest.

After Helena escapes a date gone bad, a boy, a girl, and a ghost meet in the Cedar City graveyard under the stars. A chance meeting turns into a friendship, a murder investigation, and an exploration of life, death, friendship, and family you will never forget.

 From the creative mind of Robert J. McCarter, author of Shuffled Off, comes a novel of love, life, and family (with a ghost).

What EARLY REaders Are Saying

"A wonderful coming of age story..."

"It was a rollercoaster of emotions through the whole thing…"

"A book that makes you fall in love with every character--their strengths, weaknesses, their stories, their 'skeletons in the closet,' their humanity."
