The Seer of Shadows by Avi

The Seer of ShadowsThe Seer of Shadows by Avi is set in New York City in 1872. Fourteen-year-old Horace Carpetine is a photographer’s apprentice, and his nasty boss is trying to take advantage of a rich client, Mrs. Von Macht. The plan is to fake a “spirit photograph”with an image of the woman’s dead daughter, Eleanora. But things take a turn when Eleanora’s ghost literally enters the picture, and Horace must deal with her restless spirit, hopefully thwarting her intentions for revenge. Newbery Medalist Avi weaves a suspenseful and haunting tale—one that I recommend to those looking for a fast-paced story you’ll find both frightening and mysterious.
