About This Item

New York:: Scholastic,, (2008). Fine in fine dust jacket.. First edition. The first collaboration between these two authors - Nelson (who wrote her earlier books under the name Waniek) is an award-winning poet and children's writer. The story of a 14 year old girl who moves from Brooklyn to "nowhere" Connecticut, but then has paranormal experiences which draw her into the life of a mulatto slave girl - Phyllys - who was murdered in that house. Much of this book is based on the history of Colchester, Connecticut - and Abraham Hajj, a history buff who lives there, appears in the book as a researcher who encourages Pemba to find out the truth. 129 pp.

About, IOBA

This is our 23rd year in business. We started selling books in the CompuServe Book Collecting forum in 1993, quite a while before there was any commercial Internet. In 1998 we relocated our main business from Sacramento to the Sierra foothills of Amador County, about 35 miles east of downtown Sacramento and opened a store (called Books Upstairs) at the Antiques Upstairs Mall, 5 Main Street, Jackson, CA. (open every day from 10-5) The emphasis there is on Western Americana, children's books, mysteries, science fiction, and inexpensive reading copies of classics and vintage juvenile series. Please let us know if there are any other books you are looking for; we enjoy helping collectors complete their collection and we can often suggest books for reading! .
