Product Description

From School Library Journal

Gr 5-9-This title completes Lawson's trilogy begun in Goldstone (1998) and continued in Turns on a Dime (1999, both Stoddart). When Ashley's famous mystery-writing Aunt Jo sends her the family goldstone necklace for a birthday present, Ashley is thrilled. She is especially intrigued when she discovers that if she sleeps while wearing the heirloom, she dreams of the future. Usually the dreams are vague and trivial, shady faraway images, but one of them is singularly disturbing. It is of a boy with long black hair and worn winter clothes whom she sees not only in her dreams, but disappearing in and out of real life. The tension builds as the dreams grow more frightening. Finally, an avalanche brings her face to face with the boy ghost who has lingered through death and time to recover the goldstone and return its magic to the mountain where it was crafted. While the plot moves quickly and the suspense will hold the most reluctant of readers, the dialogue is forced and awkward, the characters are thinly drawn, and resolutions seem easy and convenient. A lackluster addition to a genre that is already full of superior selections.-Heather Dieffenbach, Lexington Public Library, KY

Format: Paperback
In her new book, the end of the Goldstone trilogy, Julie Lawson ties together two stories; one from the past, one from the present, and the connections, how a boy from the early part of the century searches for one of two magical goldstones, and how it got into the hands of Ashley's family, first owned by her great-aunt's mother and passed down from Aunt Joanne to Ashley herself, and how it linked her with a strange story from the early part of the 20th century in B.C.'s mountains.
