this is my first time reading this book!

in this kinda great mystery by ghostwriter Ellen Miles the krashers (the krushers/bashers team introduced in Dawn and the Disappearing Dogs) are going home from an out-of-town softball game when the rain floods two bridges, trapping them. their only option is to seek help/sleep over at the huge empty mansion on the hill, which is cared for by a creepy old caretaker who lives in a cottage on the property. don't think I wasn't singing over at the frankenste

Review by Z.M.: "My teacher Mrs. Rode would love these books. I liked the whole book (everything)."
