Just before summer begins, 13-year-old Ali finds an odd photograph in the attic. She knows the two children in it are her mother, Claire, and her aunt Dulcie. But who’s the third person, the one who’s been torn out of the picture?

Ali figures she’ll find out while she’s vacationing in Maine with Dulcie and her four-year-old daughter, Emma, in the house where Ali’s mother’s family used to spend summers. All hopes for relaxation are quashed shortly after their arrival, though, when the girls meet Sissy, a kid who’s mean and spiteful and a bad influence on Emma.

Strangest of all, Sissy keeps talking about a girl named Teresa who drowned under mysterious circumstances back when Claire and Dulcie were kids, and whose body was never found. At first Ali thinks Sissy’s just trying to scare her with a ghost story, but soon she discovers the real reason why Sissy is so angry. . . . Mary Downing Hahn is at her chilling best in this new supernatural tale that’s certain to send shivers down her readers’ spines.

This book is a ghost story so I would recommend it to people who like to be scared. This book has a great story and a surprising twist at the end. The beginning is good, but it keeps getting better.

I hope to read this book.

i love ghost stories!

This book is so amazing. It is probably my 2nd favorite book. It is about Ali. She goes to a lake with her aunt and cousin. She and her cousin meet a ghost but the ghost isn't very pleasant. Such a good book! Okay, tuning out. Bye- Bye. Don't forget to read this book!
