We’re really proud of Amy Gorder’s new book, Ghosts of Autumn.

It’s a thrilling mystery for young adult readers. Ghosts of Autumn is deeply rooted in the author’s life and experiences. It’s partly historical fiction that tells the story of the gold rush in Elk Grove, California, the author’s home. The historical details and descriptions give the real history of her town and create the perfect setting for a ghostly mystery. Gorder, a former elementary school teacher, perfectly captures the personalities of kids unravelling a spooky mystery. The story is wonderful fictional portrayal of her students and a celebration of her community. Buy the book here:
