“This book is doing so much all at once, and so seamlessly - it's a ghost story that at the same time gently bringing the reader into an Indigenous perspective, into a loving family, a wide network of intertribal relationships. When Hughie Wolf gets involved with the local haunted house, he thinks it's just going to be a great way to make friends and support a friend of the family in her medical bills, but he runs up against painful Native stereotypes while at the same time trying to figure out who's stalking the girls of his community. As always, Cynthia Leitich Smith brings it all together in such a loving story that gently teaches at the same time. ”Stacy,

NSK Neustadt Laureate and New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith delivers a thrilling cross-genre follow-up to the acclaimed Hearts Unbroken.
Deftly leading readers to the literary crossroads of contemporary realism and haunting mystery, Cynthia Leitich Smith revisits the world of her American Indian Youth Literature Award winner Hearts Unbroken. Halloween is near, and Hughie Wolfe is volunteering at a new rural attraction: Harvest House. He’s excited to take part in the fun, spooky show—until he learns that an actor playing the vengeful spirit of an “Indian maiden,” a ghost inspired by local legend, will headline. Folklore aside, unusual things have been happening at night at the crossroads near Harvest House. A creepy man is stalking teenage girls and young women, particularly Indigenous women; dogs are fretful and on edge; and wild animals are behaving strangely. While Hughie weighs how and when to speak up about the bigoted legend, he and his friends begin to investigate the crossroads and whether it might be haunted after all. As Moon rises on All Hallow’s Eve, will they be able to protect themselves and their community? Gripping and evocative, Harvest House showcases a versatile storyteller at her spooky, unsettling best.
