Baker & Taylor
After hitting her head, Ellie Charles, thirteen, encounters a mysterious girl who takes her to moments in her past that explain how she became a manipulative, unhappy person in a story reminiscent of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."

McMillan Palgrave

Ellie Charles ghosted her best friend—and her actions come back to haunt her. A heartwarming and funny middle-grade story of redemption from Leslie Margolis.

Thirteen-year-old Ellie Charles has everything going for her: she’s the smartest, prettiest, best-dressed, and most popular kid at Lincoln Heights Middle School. She’s also the meanest, by design. Ellie’s got sharp edges, which she uses to keep herself at the top of the social food chain. But one night, hours before her school’s winter dance, a frightening accident leads her to encounter a ghost who just might change everything. This ghost, of a girl dressed all in black, makes Ellie visit her own past, present, and future—reliving her parents’ divorce, her struggles in school, and worst of all, her massive falling-out with her best friend, Marley. Can what Ellie sees inspire her to change her ways? And is a new perspective enough to save her life?

& Taylor

Using her popular reputation as the smartest, best-looking and best-dressed kid in school to get away with being a bully, Ellie encounters a ghost who shows her the past, present and future to caution her to change her ways. By the author of the Maggie Brooklyn Mysteries. Simultaneous eBook.
