From the back cover: Laney McIntyre has two strikes against her: she reminds her divorced mother of her father, and it's obvious that her older sister is favored. But for the first time Laney is in the spotlight when she and Tom Walsh, a schoolmate of mixed white and Iroquois parentage, discover two Iroquois false face masks buried in a local bog. Tom knows the masks posses terrible supernatural powers that can both heal and harm the masks' owner. Laney's archaeologist father and antiques-dealer mother both want the masks for reasons of their own. Powerless against the terrifying forces aimed at her from the masks, Laney turns to Tom. Will he help to neutralize the evil power of the false face masks? A School Library Jornal Best Book.
