In January 1988, aged twelve, Martin Pistorius fell inexplicably sick. First he lost his voice and stopped eating; then he slept constantly and shunned human contact. Doctors were mystified. Within eighteen months he was mute and wheelchair-bound. Martin's parents were told that an unknown degenerative disease had left him with the mind of a baby and he probably had less than two years to live. Martin went on to be cared for at centres for severely disabled children, a shell of the bright, vivacious boy he had once been. What no-one knew is that while Martin's body remained unresponsive his mind slowly woke up, yet he could tell no-one; he was a prisoner inside a broken body. Then, in 1998, when Martin was twenty-three years old, an aromatherapy masseuse began treating him and sensed some part of him was alert. Experts were dismissive, but his parents persevered and soon realised their son was as intelligent as he'd always been. With no memory of the time before his illness, Martin was a man-child reborn in a world he didn't know. He was still in a wheelchair and unable to speak, but he was brilliantly adept at computer technology. Since then, and against all odds, he has fallen in love, married and set up a design business which he runs from his home in Essex.Ghost Boyis an incredible, deeply moving story of recovery and the power of love. Through Martin's story we can know what it is like to be here and yet not here - unable to communicate yet feeling and understanding everything. Martin's emergence from his darkness enables us to celebrate the human spirit and is a wake-up call to cherish our own lives.

Harold Kline is an albino--an outcast. Folks stare and taunt, calling him Ghost Boy. It's been that way all of his 14 years. So when the circus comes to town, Harold runs off to join it. Full of colorful performers, the circus seems like the answer to Harold's loneliness. He's eager to meet the Cannibal King, a sideshow attraction who's an albino too. He's touched that Princess Minikin and the Fossil Man, two other sideshow curiosities, embrace him like a son. He's in love with Flip, the beguiling horse trainer, and awed by the all-knowing Gypsy Magda. Most of all, Harold is proud of training the elephants, and of earning respect and a sense of normality. Even at the circus, though, two groups exist--the freaks, and everyone else. Harold straddles both groups. But fitting in with those who are "normal" comes at a price, and sometimes it's recognizing the truth beneath what's apparent that ultimately leads to happiness . . . and turns a boy into a man.

'As the rain tipped down and thunder cracked... I knew I was a ghost. I was an actor and always would be. And I had to keep it up, for as long as the person I no longer was, might live.' So begins the progress - part pilgrim, part rake - out of post-war austerity, into the boom years of the most vibrant cultural flowering since Shakespeare. Leaving home at age seven, I sing and act through education, then run away to sea. At Cambridge, in the wake of the Pythons and the Goodies, I reach the top of the comedy ladder, just as my family emigrate leaving me loose in Swinging London and seeking my fortune on the stage. Weekly rep, West End, arts lab, the Edinburgh Fringe: Ghost Boy chronicles the journey from vagabond actor to accidental playwright, to Fellow in Theatre at Bradford University, to Resident Dramatist at the National. Like Olivier and David Frost, I was a 'preacher's kid' who ducked the Hand of God to become a questioner and entertainer. A true story of dreams lived, hopes dashed, loves lost, battles won, Ghost Boy relives the leaps of faith and pratfalls into the void, that laid the ground for tomorrow's theatre.'Very, very funny and beautifully written... a recollection in laughter...' - Howard Brenton'Huge energy and wit in the writing... very evocative of the time...' - David Edgar'Terrifically well written, funny and sad... the past tantalisingly coexistent with the present.' - Andy Mayer'A witty, beguiling memoir from this distinguished writer, hurtling through Cambridge & the deceitful 60s. All his contemporaries (I am one) will recognise his sharp recall of the raging egos colliding in those far-off, magic days when we were young & knew everything & nothing.' - Miriam Margolyes

Along with Carter's little brother, Dalton, the boys have been busy with new mysteries throughout the school year. Now that it's summer again, Paxton and Carter are into it neck deep. Dylan, Paxton's female cousin, still living in Texas, has called with news of a new ghost -- but it's not just a story. This particular ghost comes into Dylan's house and touches her cheek with his icy cold hand. He even walks the yard where her parents have seen him. The thing that really creeps Dylan out, and intrigues the boys, is that this particular ghost seems to be a little boy -- who has no head.Reading Level: 4th Grade+
