From Victoria Carless comes a spine-tingling and heartwarming story about friendship and finding your special place in the world.

Gus doesn't want to make friends. She also doesn't want to be intrigued by the cat-lady teacher at her new school, or the Riley's Comet project that she and her seaweed-eating science partner are working on together. And she definitely doesn't want to fall in love with her job as the projectionist at the Starlight, a drive-in movie theatre that her family is reviving. Because, knowing Gus's luck, she and her family could be moving on in a day, or a week, or a month. When the ghosts that haunt mum catch up with them. Or if the Starlight doesn't succeed. Then she'll have to say goodbye. Again. And saying goodbye is too hard.

'A magical middle-grade book with a feather-light fantastical touch that wonderfully helps the young protagonist figure out their complex and confusing family … Just – stunning!'
Danielle Binks, award-winning author of The Year the Maps Changed

'An utterly captivating tale of family, friends and a haunted drive-in cinema, told with gentle humour and poignant moments that tug on the heart-strings.'
Kate Forsyth, bestselling and award-winning author of The Chain of Charm series

'Quirky, sweetly nostalgic and deeply immersive. A book that quickly became a treasured friend.'
Jen Storer, award-winning author of the Truly Tan series

'What a beautifully-put-together middle grade novel. Victoria has done such a great job of bringing this tale to life.'
Karen Foxlee, author of Lenny's Book of Everything
