It has been a few years since I have even read a History Mystery. This was the first one I read and it was definitely my favorite. I read it in two days and looked up information on the event afterwards. I remember I kept talking to all my friends about it. I read a lot of books when I was younger (still do) but this one really stands out in my mind.

A story set in the South during the time of Civil Rights and the KKK. A girl finds evil in the clearing that had been her refuge, and takes on the challenge of stopping it all by herself. Enthralling and scary, with a very clever girl as the heroine. Really liked this one. :)
