When twelve-year-old Kenny Huldorf moves to Providence, Rhode Island, he soon discovers that his attic bedroom is haunted by the ghost of a teenage slave named Caleb. Before long, Caleb summons Kenny back in time, where Kenny finds himself entangled in Caleb's murder and deeply troubled by the century-old injustice. Ultimately, Kenny must solve Caleb's murder or remain trapped in history.

Part ghost story, part social commentary, Something Upstairs is a thought-provoking, hair-raising page turner from master tale spinner, Avi.

Avi's work spans nearly every genre and has received nearly every major prize, including the 2003 Newbery Medal for Crispin: The Cross of Lead. His recent Scholastic Press novel, Murder at Midnight, marks his seventieth published book. He lives in Denver, Colorado. You can visit him at
