Before Wings

by Beth Goobie (Author)


Having barely survived a brain aneurysm two years earlier, fifteen-year-old Adrien is spending the holidays working at her Aunt Erin's summer camp. But caught between the land of the living and the spirit world, she is unsure where she belongs. Faced with the knowledge that another potentially fatal aneurysm could strike her at any time, Adrien struggles to understand the message delivered by the spirits of the five young women that only she sees - a message that seems to hold the key to the dark secret that haunts her aunt.
