The first is THE SEER OF SHADOWS by Avi. It is a ghost story set in New York City in 1872. Fourteen-year-old Horace is a photographer's apprentice whose employer embarks on a scheme to trick a rich family out of money by placing an image of their dead daughter in a photograph taken of the mother. Little does Horace expect that somehow he makes the ghost come alive in the photograph and that the ghost is out for revenge! Ages 10 and up.
