The Year Of Shadows
By: Claire Legrand
Life in the Concert Hall
Olivia doesn't have many friends at school, as she eats lunch alone (until she meets Henry). Olivia, not surprisingly, makes new friends that aren't necessarily of the living kind. This is shown in the text when,"Dark shapes curled out from behind the door- along the sides, along the bottom. Long thin shadowy shapes"(7%) Olivia's new friends are ghosts and they soon tell her their story. They explain to her that with the possible destruction of the music hall, they will forever be trapped in the music hall never being able to move on. Olivia makes it her goal to ensure that there will be no destroying the music hall and help her new friends move on to death.
