Cemetery Kids: The Ghosts of Bird Island by Jacqueline DeGroot
Eight kids, dead for over a hundred years, finally get a young woman to listen to their story and help them seek justice for the lives they lost to violence. For years they have tried to contact people living in the house in front of their family graveyard, but being inept with their unproven powers, they only managed to scare each person away. But this one doesn’t scare easily.
Piper loves this little house she’s moved into, it’s perfect for her. So despite being furious at the mysterious events ruining her first night in her new home, she stays. She sees the antics of the clumsy, bungling, and awkward child ghosts as endearing. Once she understands their story, she accepts their challenges and uses their insights to rescue children all over Brunswick County. It’s not long before the little family worms its way into her heart and changes how she feels about family, commitment, and ghosts.
