Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. Latino/Latina Studies. Young Adult Fiction. Bilingual Edition. Do you believe in ghosts? Well, Elena Padilla's father didn't, and that's a shame, because his disbelief ends up making Elena a very sick girl. In his classic bilingual style, Joe Hayes tells the story of Elena's ghost fever. The story starts in an old rundown house in a dusty little town in Arizona. Nobody in their right mind will rent that house because--well, a ghost haunts it. The landlord can't even rent it out for free! That is, not until foolish old Frank Padilla comes along thinking he can save some money. Lucky for Elena that her grandmother knows all about the mysterious ways of ghosts. With her grandmother's help and advice, Elena solves the mystery of the ghost girl, recuperates from her ghost fever and, in the process, learns a valuable lesson about life.
