Adapted by Vanessa Bates from Gabrielle Wangs award-winning novel, A Ghost in my Suitcase is an action-packed adventure story that crosses cultural and spiritual worlds. Twelve-year-old Celeste -- 'half French, half Chinese and all Australian' -- travels to China to scatter her mothers ashes. There she meets her grandmother, Por Por, a quirky and wise woman with an unusual skill. Por Por is a ghost-hunter and her services are much in demand. When Celeste learns she may have inherited her grandmothers talent, she must decide whether to acknowledge her gifts and use them to save her family and friends -- and if she has the strength needed for the job. Filled with fantastical characters from this world and the next, A Ghost in my Suitcase is a beautifully told tale of mystery, grief, difference and acceptance.
