Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Masterpiece" A truly moving story about a boy who goes to a school where there is several twists and turns where I just absolutely love everything about it. The book can really make me laugh, but it is also a very dark tale. TheBookReviewer

Editorial Reviews

"Historic details about the real Hartgill, Longspee and Stourton are deftly woven into a ripping good story. It's told with self-effacing humor from the perspective of an awkward boy who emerges as honorable and brave as the ghost knight and the contemporary girl he befriends. Black-and-white illustrations add to the Tudor atmosphere and drama. Sword-swinging ghosts will haunt readers of this droll, harrowing and historically grounded ghost story."-Kirkus
