A blast from the past:

Loved this book as a child and re-read it... And it's just as good as I remember!

Two Tween girls (neighbors & best friends) try to get to the bottom of some possible paranormal occurences that have started to take place around their neighbor Miss Judith's house and yard. The Ghost, if it does exist, is thought to be the restless spirit of Miss Judith's much-beloved niece, Miranda, who drowned on the property several years earlier. Of course the girls believe there has to be logical explanations for the ghostly happenings--and there are. Sort of. Maybe. In the end, the reader is never 100% sure if there really was a ghost or not. And that's part of the fun of the book. The setting is somewhat gothic and mysterious and the author does a good job of building the tension. A great mystery story for both children and adults.

Highly recommended!
