A remote island is haunted by wedding crashers from beyond the grave.

Dan Poblocki is back with a new spooky ghost story perfect for fans of Mary Downing Hahn and John Bellairs.

There is an island, far off the coast of Maine, where the ghosts of the past are restless.

Josie Sandoval and Eli Barker are strangers when they board the ferry to Stone's Throw, traveling to the isolated island for a wedding. Then an immense storm blows in, and the wedding party is left stranded with no way to contact the mainland... and no idea that they have been targeted for revenge by the undead. The only clues to the danger they're in are a scrap of an old Nazi uniform - and an unfamiliar voice, crying out for help in German...

Josie and Eli soon realize there's much more to worry about than guest lists and flowers. It's up to them to uncover the chilling history of Stone's Throw Island and put its ghosts to rest - or this dream wedding will become an absolute nightmare.

This was a very swift-moving, action packed and suspenseful, book. I couldn't put it down. I like ready young adult fiction, and if you have a youth who enjoys mystery and suspense (and a little haunting), this is a fantastic read!
