Description

Jules' family moves into an old abandoned house. Her parents love it, but she's frightened and feels a sense of foreboding. When she sees a pale face in an upstairs window, she can't stop wondering about the eerie presence on the top floor—in a room with a locked door. Could it be someone who lived in the house a century earlier?

Her fear replaced by fascination, Jules becomes determined to make contact with the mysterious figure and to unlock the door. Past and present intersect as she and her ghostly friend discover—and change—the fate of the family who lived in the house all those many years ago.

    Jules's family is often moving due to the nature of her dad's work -- restoring old houses to their former glory. The most recent house he's working on gives Jules the creeps, especially when she learns that a family was murdered there in the 1800s and the house has been rumored to be haunted ever since. This is precisely the kind of ghost story I loved reading as a child. It's a bit spooky but not overly scary or gratuitous in its violence. It reveals itself more like a mystery, even if the reader has some more knowledge than the modern-day characters. (The story is told in alternating chapters between the ghost girl and the living girl.) While some of the story is a bit simplistic (e.g., how Jules becomes instant best friends with Maisie after literally one brief meeting), this is a solid read for upper-elementary and middle-grade children.
