Out of the Wild Night by Blue Balliett

Into the Wild

Out of the Wild Night Read Online Free - From the New York Times bestselling author of Chasing Vermeer an unforgettable story about an island haunted by the past . . . and the ghosts who must help with the present.

Ghosts are alive on the island of Nantucket. You can hear them in the wind, and in the creaks of the old homes. They want to be remembered. And, even more, they want to protect what was once theirs.

The ghosts seem to have chosen a few local kids to be their messengers -- and to help save the island. But in this mystery, the line between those who haunt and those who are haunted is a thin one -- and the past and the present must come to terms with one another in order to secure the future.

On the island of Nantucket, a handful of adolescents were selected by them to help them in a time of danger. But the child...

Now that I have finished reading Out of the Wild Night, I may need to go back and read it again. I found it difficult to read since I wasn't always sure whose view I was reading it from. The twist at the end makes everything clear. It was not the ghost story that I was thinking it was. I have lo...

This is an interesting twist on a traditional ghost story. The story makes a big case for historic preservation. Set in Nantucket there are a lot of little tidbits about local island life that I'm sure would help connect the reader to the story for me most of that was lost since I haven't even vi...

Very different read from the books I originally read from author, Blue Balliett. Seems like she is back to her origins with the ghosts of Nantucket into a novel form.

I give this three stars not because it isn't good, but because I don't feel like it has a lot of kid appeal. I appreciate the message of the importance of preserving history and heritage, but unless it's read aloud (and maybe not even then), this isn't as accessible as some of her other novels. T...

I was blown away by this book and its message. Today’s kids are just as obsessed with HGTV as the adults and the author really makes you stop and think. The ghost as a narrator and the twists throughout keep things interesting. Loved the characters of Phee and grandpa Sal. From advanced reader co...

An out-of-the-ordinary ghost story that is all about family and preserving the past in this "throw it away for something new and shiny" society. I liked it on several levels.

This is a ghost story set on Nantucket. The ghosts of the island befriend some local children in an attempt to save the old historical houses (and therefore the ghosts that haunt them) from damage/change. The main narrator is Mary, a ghost with a bell who is trying to awaken the island to the dam...

Beautifully written ghost story that, although I could only read it in the daytime, wasn't too scary.
