Set alongside the National Book Award-winning Goblin Secrets, Ghoulish Song weaves a story of music and mystery through the charmed, cursed world of Zombay.
The last day of Kaile’s life does not start well. Inspection Day at the family bakery becomes a culinary disaster, and goblin actors offer her a musical gift—a flute carved out of bone—which separates Kaile from her shadow. Only the dead have no shadows. Everyone knows that. Kaile’s shadowy adventures begin on the day her life officially ends, still breathing but unable to change what everyone knows.
