Publisher Comments:

Help, I whisper. Help.

I'm not sure who I'm talking to when I

— and find the reason for their disappearance.Social Services has turned her over to the care of a great-uncle, a mysterious man Molly has never met before. Then Molly starts having dreams about the Skeleton Man from a spooky old Mohawk tale her father used to tell her...dreams that are trying to tell her something...dreams that might save her, if only she can understand them.

Synopsis:

Molly's knowledge of and immersion in her Mohawk heritage is something she takes for granted, as is the wisdom that comes from understanding the traditional tales. Bruchac weaves an incredibly scary story of a girl whose warm, contented family is suddenly torn apart.
