Christina is stuck with her crabby uncle while her grandmother is in the hospital, and then she discovers that their summer house is haunted by multiple spirits This was one of my favorites are a kid I remember the creepy cold attic and moving chest, and it s sort of my baseline for ghost stories I like seeing Chris being stubborn and herself and pushing against mid 80s expectations of how older men thought girls should behave and what kind of lives women should have Ralph ultimately won me over. Just remembered this book scaring the crap out of me when I was a kid.

I read this when I was very young and loved it. Betty Ren Wright is another prolific authoress Sometimes she added ghosts but always evoked suspense When authors skip kid stuff, like bickering or school and stick to adventures the novels are phenomenal This is why some of Betty s are superior to others Christina s Ghost is driven by a family topic She spots a spirit right away but the mystery is trivial However these characters were shaped with such refreshing frankness an originality pervaded that had me enjoying the novel, including the personal relations it conquered.The mystery s resolution, if not for a spectral showdown that was harrying if not brief, was glossed over haphazardly Ralph and Christina rustle up what they were seeking and we don t see him give it to the sheriff Anticlimactically, we hear he was not familiar enough with the old case to have a zealous reaction Christina bonding with her Uncle Ralph was much enthralling I give four stars for a pleasant story with original touches that impressed me What is it that I admired We have all felt someone disliked us but seldom call that person out Uncle Ralph answers that he likes Christina but finds her in pickles too often for a lady Her girly sister is preferred but she has to accompany the impatient uncle Happily, there are no stern rules stifling our story Christina is left to amuse herself and acquaints Uncle Ralph at meals We aren t fed that blueprint of a kid facing the paranormal solo, either She had to clue Uncle Ralph in It was thrilling that they confronted the haunting together Sometimes reviews of ghost mysteries hamper my experience with them Many people deemed this one unusually scary If those endorsements had not primed my expectations, the disturbances that arose would have been satisfactorily eerie for me. Scary I read this as an adult twenty years ago and it made the hair stand up on the back of my neck
