The rich girls who make up the Summary Thoughts and Busy Fingers Club don't like Blossom Culp. This book is a telling of where Blosson does fit or where she doesn't in her school and community. Strong in her sense of right and justice she doesn't conform to the groups way. Considered odd because her mom is a gypsy type, Blossom finds she too has a knack for seeing the other world. Her reaching out for the ghost of a young victim of the Titanic is one such incident. A humorous visit to the Queen of England and to Madame Tussauds, Halloween night capers, her budding friendship with rich boy Alexander Armsworth who is denying his own special gifts of second sight, all help to develop the character of an odd but incredibly likable personality.
