Pemba's Song: A Ghost Story
By Marilyn Nelson and Tonya C. Hegamin
Pemba had to leave everything behind in Brooklyn—friends, a boyfriend, a whole life – to pack up and move to Colchester, Connecticut. None of this would have happened if her father were still alive. Life in a small town is exactly what she expected – boring. But a visit from Phyllys, the ghost of an eighteenth-century slave girl, changes everything. The two girls communicate through poetry and Pemba’s world is transformed in a totally unexpected way.
