A hundred years ago, Corbin Elementary School's building housed Dr. Ebenezer Corbin's School for Psychical Research. It seems that a couple of old spirits are still wandering the halls. It's up to Rhonda Zymler to find out what they want.
Ebenezer's Locker follows the adventures of Rhonda, a sassy sixth-grader who's having trouble finding her place and identity. Getting to know these spirits becomes Rhonda's quest. The more she digs, the more perilous her task becomes, and to complete it she must take two trips back in time. This story blends the realities of an economically-challenged modern American town with supernatural elements. What Rhonda finds not only gives her life a sense of purpose, but changes the fortunes of her entire town.
Here's a little secret for ya: A sequel to Ebenezer's Locker is in the works. OoooOOOOoooo, more spirits are haunting the town of Marklebury, and another adventure awaits Rhonda Zymler and her friends!
Here's a nice, creepy picture of a "spirit hand." In Ebenezer's Locker, Rhonda's neighbor, the psychic medium Tallulah Radley, describes how these were made. There were many interesting items and techniques used by psychics a hundred years ago, when Spiritualism was a favorite hobby in both Europe and America. Everybody and their sisters were having seances. Some psychics really believed they could see the future or speak to the dead. But others were cheats who invented tricks to dupe their clients. Tallulah can't stand those charlatans.
