After Jim's mother dies, Jim's father moves the family to Minerva Hall, a crumbling, desolate estate owned by the crotchety Lord Minerva. Jim hates his new home. He is bored and lonely-the only other kid around is his pesky little sister, Sal-and he misses his mother terribly. But soon, Minerva Hall reveals itself to be a place full of dark and dangerous secrets. Six children have died there. Jim encounters their ghosts one-by-one as they leave him cryptic clues and urge him to find the seventh child before it is too late. At the same time, Jim meets Einstein, a brilliant autistic boy. If anyone can help Jim, Einstein can. But the boy speaks in riddles and proves to be as mysterious as the dead children. Jim has no one to turn to as he is plunged into a mystery involving an ancient prophecy only he can stop from coming true. Will Jim be able to figure out the clues before another child is killed? Ages: 10+

About the Author:

Christine Morton-Shaw has felt "visited" all her life. She often has to sidestep people she then realizes others can't see at all. Sometimes these impressions or visions can take a sudden step closer: "It is as if the skin between this world and another world begins to get thinner. Things in that other place become clearer and louder. I'm quite happy with all this strangeness and charm, and can't imagine life without it."

She feels at home in ruined buildings or medieval houses and streets. Ancient scripts and old manuscripts and diaries seem alive to her. Some of the things in The Hunt for the Seventh have happened to her, particularly the gray glimpses and the whispers.

Christine Morton-Shaw lives with her family in Sheffield, England. She is the author of The Riddles of Epsilon and many picture books for children.
