Book Overview

Mary Downing Hahn is at her chilling best in this supernatural tale, where the long-buried secret of a young girl's death in a canoe accident relentlessly makes its way to the surface of an idyllic vacation.

A family secret is at the root of Mary Downing Hahn's story of supernatural events in Maine. Thirteen-year-old Ali is eager to spend her vacation with Aunt Dulcie, helping to care for her little niece, Emma, in the lake house where Dulcie and Claire, Ali's mother, spent summers. Claire, who is phobic about water, is dead set against her going but is forced to agree. The vacation by the lake turns unpleasant when Ali and Emma meet a mean, spiteful kid named Sissy. Emma idolizes and imitates Sissy, becoming bratty and hostile and accepting Sissy's dangerous dares. Sissy keeps talking about Teresa, a girl who drowned under mysterious circumstances when Claire and Dulcie were kids. At first Ali thinks Sissy is just trying to scare her with a ghost story, but soon she discovers the real reason why Sissy is so angry: she is the ghost of Teresa and blames Claire and Dulcie for her death.

   Couldn't stop reading it!
I read this book with my 12-year-old granddaughter. We were both drawn into the book because we were trying to figure out who this character was called Sissy. The next morning I was surprised that my granddaughter read ahead because she just couldn t stop reading! Now that is my idea of a good book!

   Grandma not as fond of MDH as grandkids
I read books that I give to our grandchildren to make sure they are appropriate. Mary Downing Hahn is one of our favorite authors and this is one of three I read in the last week, and all were dark, stark, and stressful until the very end of the book. It then felt like the author could not adequately redeem the plot. I suppose we now compare everything to Harry Potter and nothing seems to measure up. You just don 't get connected and captivated by these characters.
