Disclosure: I know the author.

This book is for the "middle-aged" child -- up to about 12 years. Norma's goal is to use some spooky ghostliness and history to show a young girl overcoming fears and succeeding on her own.

A sweet tale set in Northern California. This is the first of four books about Kathy.

I loved this book...so sad there isn't a picture...that's what drew me to the book in the first place.
