I have listed these together because, having read the first, you will want to read the sequel as well!

Jack Perdu, a shy, ninth grade classics prodigy lives with father on the Yale University campus. Smart and introverted, Jack spends most of his time alone, his nose buried in a book. But when Jack suffers a near fatal accident, his life is forever changed.

His father sends him to a mysterious doctor in New York City--a place Jack hasn't been since his mother died there eight years ago. While in the city, Jack meets Euri, a young girl who offers to show him the secrets of Grand Central Station. Here, Jack discovers New York's Underworld, a place where those who died in the city reside until they are ready to move on. This, Jack believes, is a chance to see his mother again. But as secrets about Euri's past are revealed, so are the true reasons for Jack's visit to the Underworld.

Masterfully told, The Night Tourist weaves together New York City's secret history and its modern-day landscape to create a highly vivid ghost world, full of magical adventure and page-turning action.

Jack Perdu survived his first trip to New York City's ghostly underworld. But a new school, new friends, and new feelings for his Latin classmate Cora make the world of the living a complicated place. Jack isn't sure he belongs--especially since he's still seeing ghosts.

When in an attempt to impress Cora, Jack takes her on a date to the edge of the underworld, he ends up making a fatal mistake. Now, if there's any chance of saving Cora, never mind himself, Jack will need the help of his old friend Euri and the city's colorful cast of spirits.

By turns heartrending and hillarious, this page-turning sequel to The Night Tourist expertly weaves the myth of Persephone and Demeter with a contemporary tale of love, loss and eternal friendship.
