"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!
This book was fun to read and had a lot of scary (not too scary) moments in it as teenager Alexander Armsworth finds a ghost haunting his family's barn. The ghost, a girl his age but from a different time, tells him about a disaster that's about to happen and Alexander is able to save some town people from imminent death because of the warning. He becomes a mini-celebrity, which he doesn't like, and then he has to figure out how to help the ghost rest in peace. And he gets help along the way from his neighbor, Blossom Culp, who is like the poor man's Nancy Drew.
Anyway, the story is a little different from the movie (from what I remember) but it's enjoyable none-the-less. I really like how the story takes place in the early part of the 1900s, so no cell phones or computers or video games, and the characters talk with a southern drawl.
Fun and easy read about a different time and place, where kids can be kids.
