What do you do when you’re being bullied—by a ghost? Find out in this story that “nicely blends the comic and the sinister” (Booklist). Three months ago, when Ernie P. Barber came to Treverton from Los Angeles, he’d been like a missile aimed at trouble. And Ernie had chosen Jeff to be his best friend, whether he liked it or not. “You’re my buddy, old buddy,” Ernie would always say, “. . . and I’m going to cut you in on my T.S.P.” But when Ernie dies as a result of a freak accident, Jeff’s troubles are only beginning. The ghost of Ernie P. starts to haunt Jeff. At first, Jeff thinks he’s going crazy. But when the letters T.S.P. (Ernie’s code for Top Secret Plan) and some newspaper clippings keep mysteriously appearing, Jeff is convinced that Ernie’s ghost wants him to carry out the T.S.P. alone—whatever it might be. Not until Jeff faces terrible danger and stands up to the ghost of Ernie P. does the mystery of the T.S.P. unravel.

Something chilling lurks underground, and two step-siblings must unite to uncover the truth in this “engrossing mystery” (Booklist). Katie knows that something eerie is happening in the old, deserted town where she, her stepbrother, and her newly widowed mother are spending the summer taking care of Uncle Frank. Sometimes, when Katie puts her ear to the ground in Uncle Frank’s backyard, she hears a groaning noise that sounds almost human. But when a crippled ghost-girl appears to her out of the gloom in an abandoned mine, Katie is at once terrified and puzzled. Could the girl’s chilling appearance have something to do with a tragic mining accident thirty years before? In a fiery climax, Katie and her rebellious stepbrother learn the truth about the past and discover things about each other that strengthen their fragile relationship.

The incredible story behind the founder of Noble & Noble and cofounder of Barnes & Noble comes to life in this compelling biography of G. Clifford Noble. From his humble beginnings as a poor country boy to the co-owner of the most prestigious bookstore chain in the country, The Noble Legacy celebrates the life of a true American icon. Already a budding entrepreneur at age twelve, Noble grew up in Massachusetts in the aftermath of the Civil War. Dedicated to his religious faith and driven to succeed, he graduated from Harvard with distinction and moved to New York City in the fall of 1886. His first job as a clerk at a small wholesale and retail bookstore ignited his passion for bookselling. Noble's amazing business sense propelled him to continued success, culminating in the establishment of two premier book companies, Barnes & Noble and Noble & Noble. Noble's granddaughter, Betty Noble Turner, pens a touching tribute to her grandfather and artfully captures his legacy. She also offers a historical dissertation on the origin and challenges of Noble's two companies, as well as a loving life story about the man himself.
