      One for Sorrow definitely sent chills down my spine. It is about a girl named Annie who moved to a new town where on her first day of school she meets Elsie. After a couple of days with Elsie, Annie didn't like hr at all. She was mean and disrespectful. Annie became friends with a group of girls that she liked much better. The only thing was that they would constantly pick on Elsie. Elsie ended up with the deadly Spanish Influenza. Annie and her friends went sledding in the graveyard and Annie hit her head really hard on a gravestone. At that point Annie had risen Elsie from the dead. Elsie made sure to ruin Annie's life. Annie had to find a way to get rid of her. In the end it was okay. If you like ghost stories and freaky things, this would be a great book for you!
