Denis Ever After

Abbott, T.
A story about love, family, and grief—wrapped up in a compelling mystery, this is the story of Denis Egan, who was kidnapped and murdered at age seven. He returns as a ghost to help his twin brother solve the mystery of his death while also discovering their father’s complicated family history. The story offers a unique point of view, and its interesting characters and complex conflicts will engage mature intermediate and early secondary-level readers. The book lends itself well to literature circle reading groups and may invite discussions about themes of life after death, safety, gender identity, and the grieving process.
