“Is finding your father what you really want?”
“It really is,” Pram said confidently.
“What if–” Clarence paused, like he was trying to find a way to be tactful. “Well, what exactly are you expecting when you find him? You said he was a sailor. What if he lives on the ocean?”
“I think living on the ocean might be fun.” Pram shrugged. “If he wanted me, I’d like to travel with him.”
A Curious Tale of the In-Between is Lauren DeStefano’s first middle grade novel and I thought it was fantastic. It was the final book I picked up for October and it was spooktacular.
From my review:
“Pram Bellamy was born an orphan. The unusual circumstances surrounding her birth have produced a peculiar gift, for eleven-year-old Pram can see ghosts. Growing up with two practical aunts, she has learned to keep this talent a secret. When Pram meets Clarence, a boy seeking his mother’s ghost, she must decide if she should continue to keep her ability hidden. Meanwhile, someone else has become aware of Pram’s gift and is desperate to use her for their own twisted gain.” See my full review here.
