From the Publisher
"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.
