Dan is Confused but thrilled when his parents decide to take a family vacation to York, England, right in the middle of the school year. But his excitement turns to dread when he discovers a terrible family secret that threatens to destroy everything.
I really enjoyed this book when I first bought it a few years ago. Lots of mystery, thrill and excitement. It's got ghosts, gypsies and history. A cool book for tweens. I read it when I was 12, I believe.
Something happens to Dan Roberts-something he can't control. Fifteen-year-old Daniel is confused about a lot of things. Why did his parents decide they must take a journey to York, England and why have they been acting so strangely since they arrived? Beyond that, what is the sense of doom and dread that Dan himself feels as he approaches certain ruins in the city? Are the moving shadows he sees on the walls real, or is he beginning to lose his mind? And what of his new friend, cab driver Joe Stanton, and their encounters with the gypsies? When they're together a strange sensation takes hold of Daniel as the distant past melds with the present and reams become reality.
