Walking Through Albert

Margo Lanagan
AUD $11.95
Availability: Out of print

A ghost story with a difference - spooky, mysterious but also very funny in places - for 10- to 13-year-olds.

''Someone else was suddenly there with us, taking up the same chunk of space. Aargh, it was the most horrible feeling, like millions of ants rampaging under my clothes.''

What's going on in the house over the back? Ren and Lee are seriously spooked by all those flashes of past lives and leftover feelings - but Emma has to live with them.

An overdose of ghosts is bad enough. Add in a punk bride, a witch on L-plates and a bunch of grown-ups who just won't believe what they see, and you've got big trouble.

A ghostly, mysterious - and funny - story from the author of WildGame and The Tankermen.
