The Phantom Isles

by Stephen Alter

Because the ghosts that the three friends summon aren’t just any ghosts. They were captured from an island in the middle of the Indian Ocean-the Ilhas dos Fantasmas-a place where the living and the dead once coexisted peacefully. Now confined to the pages of a few dozen library books in a New England town that’s thousands of miles from their home, the ghosts must rely on the children and a determined librarian to free them before they are lost forever.
