Ophie's Ghosts (Large Print / Library Binding)
It's 1922. Ophelia Harrison and her mother are forced to flee their home in the Georgia countryside to Pittsburgh after a terrible tragedy. And on top of all that, Ophie discovers she can see ghosts!
This enticing historical mystery story highlights issues of race in America with great thoughtfullness.
Ghost and historical stories aren't usually my cup of tea, but I was pleasantly surprised by this book! It is a perfect combination of those genres.— Laurel

“Ophie is a smart girl with a scary talent. Ophie is growing up in post WWI racist America, dealing with a lot of darkness in her life, and some of it is definitely unnatural. Her father's grisly death, she and her mom's struggle to make ends meet and the ghosts! are all part of the life she never imagined. A slice of history, a brave little girl and a rip roaring/slightly scary adventure will earn Ophie a lot of love from readers!”
