When Madame Préau returns to her own house outside Paris after several years spent in a convalescent home, she immediately notices that the neighborhood has changed. Now, instead of a beautiful garden next door there is a new house. And she can see directly into her new neighbors' windows. Madame Préau quickly feels that something isn't right. Her neighbors have two perfectly healthy children who play in the yard after school. But there is also a third child: a young boy who looks malnourished and abused, and tosses small stones at her window in an apparent call for help. The family denies his existence.

When the police refuse to listen to her, Madame Préau decides to take matters into her own hands. She's determined to help the little boy, and she'll do anything to make sure he's safe...

Is death the only way off McGraw Island?"There he was. In the window ... His hair was red, his face pale. Sickly white. Ghostly white. Staring down. Watching me. Watching Mom.Then he began pounding his hand against the glass, but I couldn't hear any sound. His lips, a moldy green, moved. Opened, closed. Open, closed.What word? What syllable? I strained to understand ...And then I got it. 'Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom'." Bret Carver has been through a lot lately. First, his big sister died. Then his parents began fighting non-stop. His life couldn't get any worse. At least, that's what he thought before his mother won a vacation to a private island resort. McGraw Island isn't Bret's idea of a dream destination. The hotel owners are freaks. Their niece is a snob. And the island's rightful heir, a boy who drowned in 1968, haunts the place, searching for the mother who abandoned him. When a hidden portrait reveals that Bret's mother is a dead ringer for the ghost's mother, Bret realizes all the "accidents" haven't been accidental. The ghost has mistaken Bret's mom for his own-and he'll kill to be reunited. "If I'd learned anything in the last six months, it was that sometimes it's better if Mom doesn't know everything there is to know." -- Bret CarverBut what Mom doesn't know could prove deadly.

A “touching and heartfelt” true story about loss, memory, and a remarkable bond between an English teacher and one of her former students (Booklist). One morning, a box was delivered to Elizabeth Stone’s door. It held ten years of personal diaries and a letter that began: Dear Elizabeth, You must be wondering why I left you my diaries in my will. After all, we have not seen each other in over twenty years . . . What followed was an extraordinary year in Elizabeth’s life as she read Vincent’s diaries and began to learn about the high school student she had taught in Brooklyn twenty-five years before. A Boy I Once Knew is the story of the man Vincent had become and one woman’s journey to understanding him more deeply—and along the way, understanding herself. With his diaries, Vincent becomes a constant presence in Elizabeth’s household. She follows his daily life in San Francisco and his travels abroad. She watches him deal with the deaths of friends in the gay community during the AIDS epidemic. She judges him. She gets angry with him. She develops affection and compassion for him. In some ways, she brings him back to life. And in doing so, she becomes the student, and Vincent the teacher. He forces her to examine her life as well as his, challenges her feelings and fears about death—and ultimately, proves to her that relationships between two people can deepen even after one of them is gone. “A meditation on memory and how a story can be a form of immortality.” —Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club
