I love this book! Hadley is an only child living with her mother, who loves her but has little time to spend with her due to work, while her friend Josh is feeling a little stifled by his family. During their free time they attempt to solve the mystery of the light on the hill.

Just finished reading this to the kids. A fast paced juvenile mystery. We all enjoyed it!!

I couldn't put down this great mystery. This story is about 2 kids named Hadley and Josh. Hadley has always wondered if someone lives on Hogback Hill. When Josh Turner a new kid comes to town he is so interested in this mystery. Hadley and Josh figure out who lives up there(if there is anyone) but that leaves more mysteries. This is a great mystery!
(wow, no one has read this book?)

Okay, so I read it in about third grade. The reason I remember it is because my dog Siri chewed the top right corner of the book, so I had to pay for it >.<
I was going back through my shelves (dusting!) and found some more books that I hadn't posted on here.

Anyway, I liked this one, the story quite is good.
