Publisher's Summary

A spooky, original ghost story with fantastic characters, chilling scenes - and a timely and important storyline about reclaiming an abandoned segregated cemetery. 

"Do you know what it feels like to be forgotten?" 

On a cold winter night, Iris and her best friend, Daniel, sneak into a clearing in the woods to play in the freshly fallen snow. There, Iris carefully makes a perfect snow angel - only to find the crumbling gravestone of a young girl, Avery Moore, right beneath her. Immediately, strange things start to happen to Iris: She begins having vivid nightmares. She wakes up to find her bedroom window wide open, letting in the snow. She thinks she sees the shadow of a girl lurking in the woods. And she feels the pull of the abandoned grave, calling her back to the clearing....

Obsessed with figuring out what's going on, Iris and Daniel start to research the area for a school project. They discover that Avery's grave is actually part of a neglected and forgotten Black cemetery, dating back to a time when White and Black people were kept separate in life - and in death. As Iris and Daniel learn more about their town's past, they become determined to restore Avery's grave and finally have proper respect paid to Avery and the others buried there. But they have awakened a jealous and demanding ghost, one that's not satisfied with their plans for getting recognition. One that is searching for a best friend forever - no matter what the cost. 

The Forgotten Girl is both a spooky original ghost story and a timely and important storyline about reclaiming an abandoned segregated cemetery.

I’m not gonna say it wasn’t good but ...

I’m not gonna say it was. I got this because my daughter asked for it. I can’t say that I know the feeling, I’m not black, but I’m not white either and these battles were fought by my forefathers in order for me to live in peace. I guess what bothers me is the fictional story to address a real problem, however children can’t be told such vivid situations without a story of sorts for there minds to understand? I don’t know. I do feel sorry for Iris, her little sister was horrible. Puts my daughters feelings in perspective. I’d recommend it. The setup takes a bit but by the middle it starts picking up. I suppose it’s done it job by stirring the feelings, I imagine it was the goal of the author. I’d say good job.

Love it!

This story is so masterfully told I never had a dull moment. Everyone involved is genius and I would love to see it as a movie or cartoon.
