Ghost and Bone by Andrew Prentice (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

Thursday, Feb 27, 2020 at 7:15pm

Oscar Grimstone is a normal kid—aside from his secret Curse. Whenever he touches something living, like a flower or his classroom goldfish, they always seem to die. But then Oscar discovers an even bigger secret: even though he is very much alive, he has the ability to transform into a ghost. Just when he thinks things can't get any stranger two ghosts show up at his home in a skeleton carriage and he winds up joining them on a journey beyond the real world to a place he never knew existed—the city of ghosts. There Oscar will discover a place where people go once they die, before they aboard a ship to the The Other Side. But will he find out who he really is?

Ghost and Bone was a wonderful book! It was very creative and exciting! It was very fun to read. I thought this book was good for ages 9 to 12. If you have read Time Castaways: The Mona Lisa Key you should read this book!
