The Girl With the Ghost Machine

Ever since the death of her mother nothing has been the same.  Her father can't seem to get over it and spends all his time tinkering with his "ghost machine" in an attempt to bring his wife back.  In frustration, Emmaline tries to destroy the machine only to discover that it actually works.  By feeding it something that holds a memory of the person (or animal) that has died that ghost will return for a short while but then that memory is gone forever.  But is it right to lose a memory for a short visit with a ghost?  Shouldn't the dead be allowed to be dead and the living move on?  These are the struggles Emmaline and her best friends Gully and Oliver face.  But then a tragedy makes them question their decisions even more.

More meat than I thought with this one - quite good and a relatively quick read.
