This is a sequel to The Secret Window, which I haven't read. It doesn't matter. A Ghost in the Window stands on its own. Meg can see the future in some of her dreams, a power she inherited from her paternal grandmother. Her parents are divorced. Meg's mother has a chance for a great vacation, Grandma isn't feeling well, and big brother Bill is going to be busy. Meg has to kiss her dream for her summer goodbye and stay with her father, the man who walked out on his family to become a writer because writing is the most important thing to him. I'm torn here because I understand how her father feels, but I'm not a parent. I think that was an appalling thing to do his family, especially since he didn't even say goodbye to his kids. So far the most responsible father I've met in one of Ms. Wright's books has been Rosie's in Rosie and the Dance of the Dinosaurs. Yes, he's absent because his employers transferred him to another place, but there's no indication that he's not a fully mature adult. I suppose Meg should be grateful that she's allowed to have her mother still be alive. That's a very traditional fairytale attitude: no mom or, as in this case, mom is absent at a crucial time, and dad is ineffectual. The unspoken message is that dads are useless at protecting their kids. They need their moms to keep them out of peril. I wonder how men feel about that. Caleb's father is dead. He and his sister still have their mother, who is a nice woman. They have a very real problem, a problem that Meg's psychic power might be able to solve. Is her power developing further? Can Meg trust Caleb with her secret?
