Reader Enjoyment Factors:

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.

Content Awareness Factors:

I wish the story was longer.

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.

Parent 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.
