Gr 6-10-- First Rachel McCaw's artist-mother leaves home to find herself. Then her father--former hippie-farmer, now trucker--sells their Manitoba farm and drives off in his 18-wheeler to sort things out, leaving Rachel in the care of the ``Fossils''--Aunt Irene and the odd assortment of elderly characters who share her ramshackled house. Rachel has been plagued by a second sight, or what she calls The Warnings , that seems to foretell the future. The Fossils seem to understand this about Rachel, and are inordinately interested in all of her thoughts, dreams, and experiences, as if they are waiting for something to happen. Will, a teenaged neighbor and classmate who is becoming more than a friend, is also drawn into the mystery surrounding a ghost who appears in Rachel's room. Like Buffie's The Haunting of Frances Rain (Scholastic, 1989), this is a compelling story, complex in themes but fast-moving and easy to read. It features a likable but very human heroine faced with meaningful, topical family problems; an unexpected first romance; and unusual supernatural intrigue rooted in her ancestry and guaranteed to keep the pages turning. Fans of Buffie's first novel will not be disappointed in this one, with its surprising and satisfying climax and conclusion; a captivating cover and contents will attract new readers as well. --Susan L. Rogers, Chestnut Hill Academy, PA

This is one of the BEST books I have ever read, and I have read LOTS. It has the perfect mix of horror, romance, mystery and that other special thing that Margeret Buffie puts into all her book that I can't really name. If you have enjoyed any other books by her, you'll like this one! Especially if you suffer from something I like to call, 'can't-stop-reading-till-I-find-out-what-happens-next.'
