Description

Jane is terrified of the masks hanging along her grandmother's stairwell, and even more scared of the Spirit Man in her grandmother's bathroom. After a week of avoiding him during a summer visit, she finally summons the courage to face him, minutes before leaving for the trip home. But her moment of triumph marks the beginning of a year of trouble for Jane and her family, trouble only Jane (and the Spirit Man) can fix.

"Quite a good yarn with a clever premise, and it is spooky enough to entrance most young readers."

"Written in easy to read prose, the setting, timelines and development of the story can easily be discussed among the younger experienced readers, while challeng[ing] those just beginning."

"Bush's story offers readers the opportunity to live vicariously through Jane's journey to self-discovery and, further, experience a thrilling sense of obtaining confidence by overcoming obstacles...Highly Recommended."

— CM Magazine

"This book will appeal to young girls looking for ways to raise their confidence. Jane is a likeable and loving character. Her relationship with her younger brother is very sweet...A great book for struggling readers or those new to chapter books."
