Order an Autographed Copy of Blue's newest Nantucket ghost book - Out of the Wild Night!
Ghosts are alive on the island of Nantucket. You can hear them in the wind and in the creaks of the old homes. They want to be remembered. And, even more, they want to protect what was once theirs.
The ghosts have chosen a few local kids to save the island against the adults who would do it harm. But the kids can't be sure how the ghosts are going to act. Things tend to disappear when ghosts are around. People tend to get trapped - especially if they're up to no good. Only the kids can make things right . . . if the ghosts will let them.
Out of the Wild Night is master storyteller Blue Balliett at her spooky best, a spellbinding tale about the haunted residents of a very special place.
"In 'Out of the Wild Night,' Balliett has concocted her best novel yet, a story that blends deft wordplay, scintillating adventure, a provocative mystery, an emphatic plea for historic preservation — and a determined public relations campaign on behalf of ghosts."
- Chicago Tribune
”Balliett outdoes herself here with this surprising story, set in a lovingly depicted present-day Nantucket… Modern themes and old-fashioned values in a ghostly Nantucket wonder, with a twist."
- Kirkus Reviews, starred
"With bright, firm tones and stirring intensity, narrator Alison Edwards dives readily into Balliett’s haunting prose. Her compassion and enthusiasm shine in her portrayals of the characters… Against the rich seaside of Nantucket, Edwards delivers this ghost story grounded in family, redemption and history, a love letter to a place and a way of life..."
