Excellent book! Combined spookness, history, and photography. Use a very wide vocabulary. Desevers very well to be a YRCA book for 2011.

YRCA 2011 nominee. An interesting book about a photographer's apprentice who discovers he has the ability to awaken the dead with his lens. Now he and an unlikely friend must stop a vengeful ghost from wreaking havoc. I enjoyed it.
