Rich Wallace is the author of Wrestling Sturbridge, an ALA Top Ten Best Book for Young Adults, Shots on Goal, and Playing Without the Ball.From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up-Herbie, 17, has taken on a lot in the last few weeks of summer. He has decided that he's going to participate in two sports in the fall, football and cross-country. He is out late one night running through a graveyard when he senses someone following him. This feeling stays with him for the rest of his run and makes him more than a little uneasy but also a little intrigued. He begins to make this route a routine, and each time the presence becomes more intense. One evening, a ghost of a young man materializes out of thin air and touches him. Afterward, Herbie begins to sense and, on occasion, see other spirits, including that of his older brother, Frank, who has been dead for 10 years. Herbie, Frank, and the ghost of Eamon, the original spirit he encountered, are intertwined in a search for an understanding of one another's experiences in life and in death and how to move on from them. This story is a bit tricky to follow. The narrator is revealed, eventually, as the spirit of Frank but his first-person account seems to complicate the telling. The jumps among the three story lines can be abrupt but shouldn't be a problem for fans of ghost or fantasy stories. Herbie is a smart, likable, and compassionate protagonist. Otherworldly encounters are popular with teens, and this one should appeal to thoughtful readers who won't be overwhelmed by the complexity of the plot or the sophistication of the writing.
