I'm so disappointed. The book was engaging from the opening paragraph and took a few interesting twists that made for an awesome rising action/climax, but as it went on, it seemed to really falter, like Fitch had to make a deadline or word count. The ending really didn't feel right.

I really enjoyed this story. It had a little mystery, a little romance, a little adventure all mixed up with a deep sadness running through it. There were a couple little surprises, some cheer out loud moments, some tears on my cheeks moments and a satisfied feeling when I finished.

I found this book very intriguing. It took a while to get into, but it was definitely worth it. The story was chilling and somewhat disturbing, but the characters and motives were very sweet and enjoyable to read about. great summer read.

“An odd shaped shell caught my eye. . . . I turned it over. . . . It was a tiny, perfect skull.”

In the wake of a family tragedy, twelve-year-old Minn Hotchkiss is sent to spend the summer with her sour grandmother in the tiny seaside town of Boulder Basin, Nova Scotia. Almost as soon as she arrives, Minn discovers the skull of a human child on the beach. She is swiftly caught up in a mystery that reaches back more than a century, to the aftermath of the most tragic shipwreck in Maritime history before the Titanic.

Over the course of this extraordinary summer, Minn will discover romance with a boy who turns out to be much more than he seems, and learn that the grandmother she resented is more curious, dedicated, and surprising than she had ever guessed. She might even meet a world-famous rock star!

By summer’s end, Minn will solve a ghostly mystery and, most importantly, finally be able to give up the terrible secret she has kept locked in her heart.
