Young Reader Reaction: I really liked this book. It reminded me of those classic stories where a person meets a person who turns out to be really a ghost.

Adult Reader Reaction: I liked this book. Although the level of intrigue never quite reaches that of the Nancy Drew series and the drama itself is somewhat predictable, it is an easy read that will engage many young women. Enderle’s character dialogue is great and engaging.

Pros: How can anyone pass up a story about a haunted house! This would be a great read for a slow reader or a reader moving up levels.

Cons: I wish the story was longer.

Borrow or Buy: Buy. It is worth the five dollars and would be a good one to read over again.
