Fourth-grader Jack Carlton is miserable: His family is moving across the country and he might never see Iowa or his best friend again. But Jack can’t help cheering up when he sees his new home — an old lighthouse keeper’s lodge, right on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. As it turns out, there’s another 10-year-old boy who calls the lighthouse home — and he’s a ghost!
Nathaniel Witherspoon materializes in Jack’s room one foggy night and announces, “You’re exactly the kind of boy I need.” After Jack’s terror subsides, he listens to Nathaniel’s tale of the shipwreck that cost him his life . . . and of the mystery surrounding his father’s death. Can Jack help his new ghost-friend discover the truth about his dad and that long-ago stormy night?
