Horn Book Review

Liz helps her grandmother clean out a house that has been in the family for generations. During her visit she meets ghosts and is able, by traveling into the past, to help an ancestor. The story, which touches on the value of reading, has just enough suspense and mystery for the young reader moving into chapter books. (c) Copyright 2010.
