Description
Aurelie Bonhoffen has grown up in her family's amusement park circus. She's been a juggler, the back end of a cow, and played a dead girl on the ghost train at Gribblesea Pier. But when she turns 12 she stumbles onto a remarkable secret: her family members have two chances at life, as they can become ghosts. Indeed, her favorite uncles Rolo and Rindolf are already ghosts—a fact that becomes enormously important when Aurelie's new friend at school reveals a plot to demolish the pier, in this slightly spooky tale for readers 8 to 11.

"This fast-paced, engaging, and charming story has echoes of Jeanne Birdsall's 'Penderwicks' and some Dickensian elements, but in the end this is just a finely executed story of family and friendship and the ties that bind a community."—School Library Journal
