Things are looking up for Zack. With a new stepmother, a new house, and a new dog, Zack is hopeful that the sad and bad things in his life are now over. Except now there is this ghost that has unfinished business and Zack is right in his way. Little by little, Zack discovers that things are not what they seem to be - a tree, white roses, a new friend. And it all goes back fifty years, to a car accident and how the lives of several families, including Zack's, have been intertwined, like the branches of the creepy tree at the crossroads.

When the mysterious Jack Spinner appears in response to a plea for help, his assistance is both amazing and frightening. The owner of the village woolen mill has just died and his daughter, Charlotte Miller, is faced with decisions far beyond her age and experience. For generations, it has been said that all bad things at the mill are due to a curse. To save her family's mill, as well as the livelihood of many in the village, she agrees to accept Mr. Spinner's offer to weave straw into gold thread. The terms Charlotte accepts threaten all she loves and cherishes. When she has only 3 days to honor her promise, Charlotte is driven to break the curse that has caused such pain and loss for generations. This fascinating historical novel is filled with engaging mystery that unfolds in the most unexpected manner as each secret becomes known.

Melvin Beederman doesn't really feel like a superhero. He looks great in his uniform, he can run really, really fast, and his x-ray vision works just fine, but he can't leap tall buildings in a single bound (it takes 5 to 6 bounds every time) and he has great difficulty stopping a speeding train. Never the less, he graduates superhero school at the top of his class and is sent off to Los Angeles to protect the city. Everything goes well until he has to send his cape to the cleaners. It comes back several sizes too small and nothing seems to work anymore. Will Melvin ever be able to fight evil again? Who will stop the McNasty brothers?
