Very good mystery. So good that I finished it in ONE night. It is a good book to read when waiting in line because it flys fast. It was written by Joan Lowery Nixon, so that alone will let you know it will be good because she is a FOUR TIME winner of the Edgar Award.

I think if I would of read this book at a young age I would have probably given it 5 stars but as an adult I found it too predictable. I figured out the ending a quarter of the way through the book. Nonetheless, I thought it was still an enjoyable read and written well.
It's about a girl named Sarah who nearly drowned. Because of that near death experience she has become more sensitive to spirits. When her family moves to Houston, the house they move in immediately feels wrong to Sarah. It's not long before a ghost there contacts her and asks her for help. Sarah starts to do some detective work but there is someone out there that wants to keep the secrets hidden. Now her life might depend on discovering the truth.
Definitely would recommend this book to the younger crowd. Maybe 12-15 years of age.
