Teenager Jenny Gluckstein wasn't looking forward to leaving New York City for a new life in the Dorset countryside, but she couldn't have expected the "old weirdness" she finds. Tamsin, the ghost of a traumatized young woman, haunts her stepfather's estate, along with a variety of night creatures both friendly and fearsome. To save her new friend, Jenny must learn what happened more than three hundred years ago. Author Peter S. Beagle doesn't sound a bit like a teenaged girl as he reads the first-person narration, but he still captures Jenny's inflections and personality well. He also creates a variety of well-defined supporting characters. This novel is too intense for younger readers, but older teens will find it enjoyable.
