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.
