Annie makes a big mistake when she decides not to be Elsie's best friend- now Elsie won't leave her alone- even though she's dead.

Mary Downing Hahn is a master of ghost stories, and this fast-paced historical haunting doesn't disappoint! The main characters are believable, the descriptions of the bullying ghost are perfectly creepy, and the ending is unique and satisfying. This book is Guided Reading Level P, Lexile 660, Accelerated Reader 3.7.

This book is really good and I was hooked from the start. It doesn't have any swear words or gore but it's still scary. I finished it in four days.
