For fifty years, ten-year-old Susie has waited for her parents and sister to come back. Each new family who moves into her home seems not to notice her, except for the young children. Susie likes children. She even likes baby-sitting, but can she baby-sit forever? Why can't she get anyone else's attention?

Charlotte is looking forward to a great summer in her new home, despite her many baby-sitting duties. But someone else seems to be helping her watch her little brother. Someone only he can see. Gradually Charlotte realizes her all-too-normal house is haunted-by the ghost of a girl who doesn't or won't realize that she's dead.

Set around the Fourth of July, this story offers two perspectives-one of the living and one of the dead-in a wholly entertaining and thought-provoking way.

      The Ghost Sitter is cry-worthy and satisfying. Susie has lived in the same house for fifty years after her family moved away. As family after family move in, she becomes more lonely and stars to spend more and more time as the "babysitter". More like the ghost sitter. Then Charlotte's family moves in! After hearing the tales of the ghost, Charlotte decides to try to communicate. Ghost's can't harm you, right? Only problem is, what if the ghost doesn't know what they are? --BKS
