This critically-acclaimed middle grade ghost story, called “a fascinating, page-turning tale” in a starred Kirkus Reviews review and “unapologetically—and beautifully—Malaysian” by ALA Booklist, follows a young girl who inherits a ghost from her witch grandmother, in a chilling but heartfelt adventure perfect for fans of Holly Black and Tahereh Mafi.

I am a dark spirit, the ghost announced grandly. I am your inheritance, your grandmother’s legacy. I am yours to command.

Suraya is delighted when her witch grandmother gifts her a pelesit. She names her ghostly companion Pink, and the two quickly become inseparable. But Suraya doesn’t know that pelesits have a dark side—and when Pink’s shadows threaten to consume them both, they must find enough light to survive…before they are lost to the darkness.

Perfect for fans of City of Ghosts and Cece Rios and the Desert of Souls, this ghostly middle grade debut explores jealousy, love, and the extraordinary power of friendship.
