"In time for Halloween, a BOO-k about a ghost that young readers will enjoy." --Kirkus Reviews

"With effectively repetitious, lilting verse, Bickell underscores the ghost’s hopefulness and determination before entreating readers’ help to bring this gentle friendship story to an uplifting close. McGrath humorously portrays Little Ghost as a round creature with large, expressive eyes, whose simplicity offers a striking contrast to the detailed depictions of her intricately patterned animal pals." --Publishers Weekly

Isla Morley's The Last Blue takes place mainly in 1937 and a bit in the 1970s and is about Havens, a struggling photographer and his reporter sent by Roosevelt to document America’s working class. They are sent to Appalachia and encounter elusive-for-a-reason siblings who are Blue people. The photographer is instantly smitten, falls (literally) head over heels for Jubilee and tries to keep quiet about these folks in the hollers who are “different”. This historical fiction novel indicates clearly the depths of hatred some “right-colored” people have for people who are “different” (poverty, upbringing, skin color) from themselves but is finally, a luminous love story, with Havens learning to let go as Jubilee learns to stand up for herself. When I slow down my reading as I enter the last chapters of a book, I just want to stay within this book’s “walls” and not escape to the real world. - reviewed by Maureen
