Tam (Rikkiau) | 2 comments About 20 years ago I read a book about a boy (I think his name was Jeremy) who could see ghosts (said to be of dead miners who were never found) and one night he decided to follow them down the mines.

I would really love to read this book again but can't remember the name at all. I think this was from a school class set but would have been a few years old even then.

I hope that someone is able to help me
Thank you in advance

What is it with ghosts and mines? Seems to be an entire children's/YA subgenre.

Ha! I was thinking the same thing :)

Tam, what age group would you say the book was geared towards: teens or 9-12 age bracket?

Here's a few to look at. Most of the books listed are the first book in a series.


Mysterious Max
Shadows on the Wall
Thicker than Water

Tam, are you still looking for this? Was it anything suggested by Tab?

The Mine Of Lost Days involves a "haunted" copper mine in Ireland and time travel.
