Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Fantasy and reality are seamlessly combined for the protagonist of Phillips's ( Multiplying Glass ) oddly entertaining novel, a ghost story in which polite society and psychological realities are at odds. When Florence Gage, a motherless girl from a wealthy British family, is lonely one day, she conjures up a playmate--George, a dead relative she knows very little about. But after her initial thrill at the novelty, Florence finds that George not only won't go away when she wants him to, but also that he reputedly drowned girls when he was alive. Set in 1910-1911, A Haunted Year is most effective in its portrayal of the quirky ways in which the rationalistic British upper class handles the uncanny--Florence, troubled by the appearance of George, is often told to ``take a little rest''--and in its depiction of Florence's private feelings of attraction to and repulsion at George. Less consistent is the portrayal of George as a truly scary, threatening presence. A sometimes unsettling commingling of the two worlds of childhood and adulthood. Ages 9-13. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-This ghost story is a period piece, set in England in 1910, where motherless Florence, 12, lives with her great aunts while her father is traveling abroad. Intrigued by an old photograph of a mysterious cousin, the lonely girl invokes his spirit and gets more than she bargained for. At first George is an exciting playmate, but then he begins to take control, forcing her to meet him secretly every night. A visit to her cousins in the country is a welcome respite, until he reappears there. Finally Florence becomes critically ill, and, in an episode that may be only a fevered dream, she subdues George and rejoins the living. The story continues, however, as he transfers his attentions to her cousin Nellie, and Florence and her new stepbrother must combine their efforts to put an end to the ghost's evil influence over all their lives. Phillips skillfully evokes time and place, and the happy ending of a new family for Florence fits the period tone well. However, the conclusion is disappointing; George's designs on Nellie and ultimate defeat are an anticlimax.-Ruth S. Vose, San Francisco Public Library
Susan DeRonne
Set in pre-World War I England, this book combines an old-fashioned flavor with a 1990s page-turner style. Florence, not yet 12, finds a picture of a mysterious dead cousin and, by making a magic circle of stones, summons the spirit of her cousin George to keep her company over a lonely school holiday. Initially, they are great friends, but soon the ghost demands more time and allegiance than Florence is willing to give. As her studies and then her health begin to fail, she is sent to the country to live with a large family of cousins. When George follows her there, strange happenings bring Florence to the brink of death. Unsuccessful in her attempts to tell adults about George and her fears, Florence finds an ally in her new stepbrother, and together they deal with George. Readers are left to decide whether George is or is not a real ghost and how much is imagined. The book includes a helpful family tree and an afterword that sets the story in the culture of the period and offers insights into why Phillips wrote the story.
