About the book:

The novel tells the story of twelve-year-old Cedar. Last year, her family was whole, and then her father and youngest brother, Ben, were killed in a devastating accident.  It’s their first summer as just three, and Cedar, her mother, and her brother Miles have moved to the small town of Iron Creek. They’re just settling into their new house when a boy named Leo, dressed in costume, rides by on his bike. Intrigued, Cedar follows him to the renowned Summerlost theatre festival. Soon, she not only has a new friend in Leo and a job working concessions at the festival, she finds herself surrounded by mystery. The mystery of the tragic, too-short life of the Hollywood actress who haunts the halls of Summerlost. And the mystery of the strange gifts that keep appearing on Cedar’s windowsill.
