Kacey (Kaceyyyuhhh) | 2 comments Ok, so I've been trying to find this book for awhile now and it's driving me crazy! I read it back in 6th grade (about 6 years ago) and I cannot for the life of me remember the title (I keep thinking of something along the lines of "Ghosts in the Attic" or whatever).

It's about this girl who moves into this house with her parents and it has ghosts in it. She meets the neighbor boy and they start trying to figure out the mysteries behind the ghosts (I think), and she ends up kind of falling for him. So they both basically get together in the end. But the point is there are ghosts and there's an attic and it all ties together. I remember on the cover the main character girl was sitting in a chair surrounded by ghosts and it was cartoon looking.

Checked the ghost books by that author?

Amanda (misterfive) | 203 comments Maybe The Haunted Attic by Margaret Sutton? It's part of the Judy Bolton series. The cover doesn't sound familiar, though. If she's having a rough time in her new school, and there is a Halloween party at the end where she and her brother bust the ghosts, it might be the book.

I think I remember seeing this at a Scholastic Book Fair in the mid-2000s. I will try hard to remember the book. The cover definitely made me want to put the book on my to read list but I never got to it. Maybe someone who knows how to search by Publisher could use Scholastic.

Lily's Ghosts by Laura Ruby Is this it?

Cicada Summer is, I think, the click for Tiffany's suggestion. (I'm basing that on the summary for this book. There were other books with this title as well.)

I sent pm asking if she's seen the suggestions.
