Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8-Cassie and her family are about to move into their new country home, but on her first visit, the 14-year-old has an experience with the house ghost and learns that someone has been squatting there as well, perhaps someone who is up to no good. The ghost is able to communicate with Cassie, but things start to get frightening when the stranger begins to send threatening messages to her. They both want her help, but the squatter is willing to harm those Cassie loves to get her cooperation. Mystery fans will find their comfortable, formulaic mystery/ghost story here-girl meets ghost and villain, becomes terrified but vows to save her loved ones, and finds treasure and justice in the end. This is an appealing book for those who like their mystery and horror on the light side, complete with a heroine who receives threats via e-mail and advice from her chatty best friend.

From Booklist

Gr. 7-12. Readers fond of stories featuring ghosts, mysterious old houses, family tragedies, letters from the dead, hidden treasure, and threatening strangers will nestle down happily with this uncomplicated drama. Cassie's ambivalence about the isolated nineteenth-century house her parents have bought sharpens considerably after she encounters the ghost of Annie, a child killed by lightning long ago, and discovers letters containing both a sad tale of premature deaths and hints of a possible fortune concealed nearby. Soon after, she begins receiving scary e-mail and photos from someone who is after the letters, and she glimpses a man lurking about. Unfortunately, she can't convince her parents to take the danger seriously until an old neighbor and her little brother, Ben, disappear. Garretson winds the plot up to a suitably melodramatic climax in which Cassie, with help from Annie, tracks down and subdues the kidnapper, frees his victims, then finds--yes--bags of gold hidden in the walls of the house. Try this eerie, plot-driven crowd pleaser on Bellairs and Strickland fans. John Peters
