Nothing but Ghosts: The Catalog Description

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

Lenore, bless her, prompted this: The "official" description of Nothing but Ghosts.

Ever since her mother passed away, Katie’s been alone in her too-big house with her genius dad who restores old paintings for a living. Katie takes a summer job at a garden estate, where, with the help of two brothers and a glamorous librarian, she soon becomes embroiled in decoding a mystery. There are secrets and shadows at the heart of Nothing But Ghosts, symbols hidden in a time-darkened painting, and surprises behind a locked bedroom door. But most of all, this is a love story—the story of a girl who learns about love while also learning to live with her own ghosts.

This is a heart-felt, lyrical tale from the National Book Award nominated author of Undercover and House of Dance.

Beth, I'm buying it for the glamorous librarian alone. Seriously, though, sounds great. :)

Lenore — I adore you for forcing the issue!. PJ... You are too much, reading like rapid fire over there.

Bibliovore: This librarian is uber glamorous (and very smart, to boot!). Because why? Because librarians are heroes and heroines for so many of us.

May this one rock girls' worlds. Sounds like Katie's all Nancy Drew should've been!

I'm still out and about in the world, but wanted to pop in quickly to say this sounds fabulous! :-)
