Faces in the Flames: A Ghost Story relates how fourteen-year-old Cam and his dad go on a trip to the South Pacific islands to SCUBA dive. They want to see Cam’s grandfather’s sunken ship that was attacked in WWII. Since the ship is now a war grave where sailors were killed, Cam is told not to enter or take anything from it. Cam enters the ship any way and takes something he shouldn’t. He ends up bringing home something much more frightening than just a shiny keepsake.
