From the Publisher
"More death! More, if you do not stop it. Others lost, like me in the black water. Save them!"
When Alexander first sees the eerie glow in the dormer window of the barn, it sets his heart pounding. And when he ventures into the barn in the dark of night, his breath catches in his throat. Suddenly Blossom Culp's words come back to him: "You can make contact with the Unseen...." Now there's a girl ghost standing right in front of him, telling him of great danger ahead. But is there time for Alexander to act on her warning? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

First, in a world I feel frequently encourages children to advance too quickly, this is a pleasant YA book. It provides wholesome entertainment. No worries about cursing or drugs; and, there is only the most innocent reference to boy-girl things. Sure, I believe in preparing kids for the real world, but it's nice to give them this type of option. I prefer it.
In regard to the substance of the book, it's fun and interesting. It's YA, so it isn't intended to be an adult, action-packed thriller.
The writing is sound and without superfluous words or content. Compact and pleasant.
I had the pleasure of meeting the author about 25 years ago when I was in the 8th grade - it's when I initially discovered his books. I came across this randomly on amazon and downloaded it for my daughter...but I gave it another read, too.
Really good book!
