The thrilling sequel to Victoria Schwab's New York Times bestselling City of Ghosts! Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual.

Sure, it's fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there's true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs. When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter -- and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger. And if Cass fails, the force she's unleashed could haunt the city forever. New York Times bestselling author Victoria Schwab returns to the spooky and heart-pounding world of City of Ghosts, delivering thrilling new adventures and an unforgettable spin on friendship. (Because sometimes, even psychic ghost best friends have secrets...)

If there really is alien life elsewhere in the Universe, then it's reasonable to ask why we haven't seen it. Surely planet Earth must have been visited by aliens, if they exist. Does that mean that alien life doesn't exist? This book uses our knowledge of the universe, some simple maths and a little bit of intelligent speculation to take a sober look at the chances of our actually meeting alien life. After all, we will only meet up if both of us are in the right place at the right time. The Universe is a big place - and it has been around for a long time. Perhaps we were "out" when they visited us? This is a wonderful non-fiction book which offers deep insights to inquiring minds in a way that is simple yet not patronising. Light-hearted, stimulating and entertaining, this book will answer at least some of the questions that a curious child wants to know the answers to.
