steen (xoxosteen) | 2 comments I remember reading a book from when I was a kid about a family that travels to a vacation home. The lead character is a young girl, possibly with a sister. The ghost starts out as troublesome but quickly befriends the main character and, at the end when the family is leaving to head back home, the ghost goes into a cat figurine that the main character carries out.

Any ideas?? I think the ghost's name was Beryl.

This has been driving me crazy for a very long time!

Beware! This House Is Haunted has a ghost named Beryl. You didn't say how long ago you read it, but this was first published in 1988.

"After Jessica and her family, including her new stepbrothers, move into a vacation home in Cornwall, Jessica discovers that Beryl, the ghost of a spoiled rotten little girl, is trying to scare her family away."
