About the Author:

HILA FEIL is also the author of The Windmill Summer and The Ghost Garden. She divides her time between New York City and Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-9-- Written in the form of a journal, this is the story of 16-year-old Julia's summer as an au pair on Cape Cod. Her first impressions of her charge Molly, Molly's stepmother, and their spooky old house are not reassuring. Molly seems obsessed by her mother, who died some years earlier, and eventually Julia herself begins to sense a mysterious presence both in the house and in a drowned village nearby. At the same time as she must deal with these phantoms, she must cope with the very real presence of Sean, a local artist, who shows a disturbing but not unwelcome interest in her. Finally, as summer draws to a close, she must resolve both influences and return to life in the city. The word for Feil's novel is cool. The title is cooly lyrical, the cover illustration is in cool blues, and the text is unsensational, balanced, and refreshing. Clear descriptions, effective development of suspense, and seamless plotting are satisfyingly rounded off with a conclusion that is neither too predictable nor too outlandish. Most difficult of all, Feil has created a protagonist who demonstrates both the self-confidence and doubts of youth, leveling a critical eye on herself and her surroundings without claiming the adolescent omniscience so prevalent in novels for the age group. Feil's device of a teenage crush on an older man is not original, but she maintains her balance even here, and the relationship is handled realistically. Images of ephemeral times, events, and people reinforce the changes that Julia experiences during a most unusual summer. --Barbara Hutcheson, Greater Victoria Public Library, B.C., Canada
