I read this book because my daughter was reading it and wanted me to read it with her. I found it to be very interesting even though written for a much younger age than myself. A very good ghost novel.
This is a good easy read story of a ghost who lures children into a pond to drown.
"A powerful, convincing, and frightening tale...Ghost-story fans have a spooky treat in store" School Library Journal Starred Review.
