After traveling to the ghostly underworld beneath New York City, Jack has made it back above ground, to join the living. But if he's alive why is he still seeing ghosts?
Jack tries hard to fit in at his new school - and tries even harder to win the affections of his Latin classmate and friend, Cora. In an effort to impress her, Jack leads Cora to the entrance of the underworld and makes a terrible mistake. Soon they have crossed the threshold, and there may be no getting back.
Like The Night Tourist, this exciting sequel blends together the modern-day world and mythology - this time cleverly introducing readers to myth of Persephone and Eros.

In seventh grade, her mother convinced her to start taking Latin. An embarrassing translation error ended her Latin career three years later but the time she spent with magisters Ellis and Philips instilled in her a lifelong love of etymology and hatred of grammar.
After surviving high school, Katherine went to Yale where she studied English literature. Upon graduation, however, she discovered that openings for poets were scarce ...
