From battling off dark spirits to fighting with Jac, Kat's week-long stay at the haunted mountain house is anything but relaxing. The question is what will be scarier: facing off with a misguided spirit or with her best friend, whose mother happens to be their chaperone?
In the Catskill Mountains, mystery is waiting . . . .
Just when she needs it most, a little excitement comes to Jax's mountain. First, a beautiful, giant dog stops at her door. Even though he has no collar, the Tibetan mastiff doesn't act like a stray -- and he seems to want to stay with Jax.
Then lights appear in the old, abandoned monastery up the mountain. The mastiff, who likes being called Mo-Mo, leads Jax to the mountaintop. There she meets a boy her age, Yeshi, who has come all the way from Tibet with his teacher to open the abandoned building -- and to search for a long-lost statue, possibly hidden away in the monastery.
But someone else is searching for the statue, too, and when Jax's adventure turns dangerous, she'll have to count on her new friend, and the mysterious dog that's found her, to get her back down the mountain safely.

From humble beginnings to world leader, a new biography focuses on the childhood of the Dalai Lama, as his country remains at the center of the world stage.
On a quiet winter morning in 1937, several men on horseback rode into the tiny Tibetan village of Taktser. Disguised as peasants, the high lamas were on a secret mission--soon they would identify 3-year-old Lhamo Thondup as the 14th reincarnation of the Dalai Lama. With a foreword by the Dalai Lama himself, this dramatic narrative follows his remarkable childhood, illuminating the story of Tibet and introducing a remarkable world figure to a new generation.
