Description
Ike's friends want to find a ghost at the spooky Hawkins place. Ike doesn't really want to go, but he does anyway. Mem has to go because she is Ike's little sister. She goes wherever Ike does.

The Hawkins place is deserted, except for a shed full of birds. Should they throw a rock at the window and run? Or not? Even if they try, Ike and Mem cannot leave the Hawkins place behind. The bird shadow follows them everywhere.

This is a tender but adventuresome young chapter book about choices and consequences, family and friendship, that introduces an appealing sibling pair.
