Horn Book Review

With the ability to witness past events via magical sparkles only visible to her, thirteen-year-old Raine discovers she has moved into the house of a missing girl. Visions and run-ins with the school bully lead Raine to suspect foul play is afoot. Realistic portrayals of middle-school social drama, a well-paced plot, and an engrossing mystery compensate for any sense of magical contrivance. (c) Copyright 2015.
