By Virginia Hamilton (Author)

Life changes radically for fourteen-year-old Tree and her older disabled brother when the ghost of Brother Rush appears to Tree, first in the street and then in her home. The handsome ghost of her mother's brother takes her back in time to bear witness to the past and to learn about the terrible disease that is killing her own brother.
