Summary

Li Fu is a servant to the First Emperor - not an easy job, as the emperor is known for his fierce temper and unusual punishments. The boy dreams of one day joining his army, like his brother; however, his master won't let him go because he likes the soothing music that he plays with his harp. When Li Fu discovers that there is a plot against the emperor's life, his role becomes more important than he could've imagined - as he must uncover the assassin, before it's too late...

    Mattie is a ghost, swept away in a flood in 1922. Nate hates being stuck in a small town, away from Boston and all his friends. Mattie must find her body and only has a few days left before she is banished to the Badlands. Nate somehow can see Mattie and she convinces him to help by ripping her face off and other gross things. With the help of a crazy cat lady, a friendly librarian, and a group of of helpful ghosts, the two must avoid Mattie's evil, axe-swinging Pa and find her body. Ages 9 and up. 135 pages. 
    The Ghost - Mattie died horribly nearly 100 years ago, swept away in a flood while her pa tried to kill her with a huge axe. Now she is stuck in the little town with buckets of water pouring over her all the time. She’s not even allowed in the graveyard. She’s spunky, pushy and has as much fun as she can - given her situation - being 11 years old forever. 
    The Boy - Nate was dragged to live in the little, hick town by his mother. All he wants is to get back to his friends and his dad back in Boston. He doesn’t have any friends here and doesn’t want any. 
    The Mystery - Mattie can’t find her body. She only has eight days to find it or she is banished to the Badlands forever. 
    The Weird Thing - Nate can see Mattie. He’s the first person in a long time who can. 
    The Others - A crazy, old cat lady, some old lady ghosts, a friendly librarian. 
    Time is running out and Mattie’s Pa is back from the grave, swinging his axe and trying to stop Mattie and Nate. 
    WARNING: Your parents might get scared and worried that you are reading about gross and sometimes violent things. There ARE some scary and gross and really mean things in this book (but it is a made up story - so tell them not to get too scared).
