The Lovereading4Kids comment
A wonderfully rich and intelligent fantasy that weaves together the destinies of three children, through the pages of some books, an eccentric librarian and a ghostly island. The dual plot line of the mysterious South Pacific island and that of the present day has a real page-turning quality about it and is cleverly interwoven to create a fantastically imaginative fictional history. It almost seems real and authentic. Stehen Alter is undoubtedly a powerful new voice in children’s fiction. Read and enjoy.

Island Of The Phantoms by Stephen Alter
When three children break into the town library to read from a book of sorcery, little do they realise they are about to raise the dead. But the ghosts they conjure up aren't your average ghosts.
From the publisher:
A startlingly intelligent and haunting fantasy; think Gabriel Garcia Marquez (junior) in the South Pacific.
