The face in the mirror
Stephanie S Tolan
(Morrow Junior Books, March 15, 1998)
Jared doesn't believe in ghosts, but...While spending the summer with the father he has never met before, Jared finds himself acting in a production of Richard III. His half brother Tad, a television star and all-around brat, torments first-time actor Jared. Then Jared sees a face shimmering in the dressing-room mirror and meets the ghostly presence who has inhabited the grand old theater for more than one hundred years, and who becomes his friend and ally. But as opening night approaches, Jared's enchantment with the ghost turns to terror when he realizes that he and Tad are being drawn too deeply into Shakespeare's bloody play.
