I've been wanting to read this book for AGES so imagine how happy I was to a) get a signed copy at ALA and b) that it turned out to be AWESOME. This is set during the Civil War, and there are ghosts and conspiracies and interesting historically-accurate bits (including early Spiritualism, one of my interests) and the art is lovely and the protagonist has a scrapbook! And she steals stuff to stick in it! The ending was completely surprising, but in a good way if you know what I mean. It's both sad and happy, and I liked it a lot. The book as a whole is very good, and I'll definitely read whatever else Adele Griffin and/or Lisa Brown write!
