Adriana | 2 comments Hello everyone
I'm looking for a children's or young reader's book about three girls solving the mystery around the house of one of the girl's aunt. I pretty much remember everything about the story but can't remember anything about the author or title.

Here's what I know about the story:
The protagonist Cassandra (or Kassandra) is invited for a sleepover with Kristy and Genevieve, although she believed until this point that the other girls didn't like her. They go to Genevieve's aunt's house in a remote area(her aunt is believed to be away for the weekend). At the house they meet a boy from the neighbourhood called Darcy, that Kristy and Genevieve make fun of. After that he leaves. Later that night they begin to hear strange noises from upstairs (which is locked) and things (like Genevieve's piano sheets) disappear. They try to find the source of the noise and believe that either boys from their school are playing a joke on them or that Darcy came back to revenge himself.

SPOILERS from here onwards
Eventually Genevieve admits that she hid all the things that disappeared to torment Cassandra. After that they hear the noises from upstairs again and Kristy and Genevieve run off. Cassandra later finds Genevieve's aunt upstairs. She had an accident and actually never left. At this time Darcy shows up too and helps them.

About publication date:
I think the book should have been written in the 80s or early 90s. I read it in the mid-90s.

Since I only know the names of the characters I couldn't find anything on the regular search engines. Any other great ideas?

Adriana | 2 comments Yes it is Games! Thank you!!!
Actually I kept looking from time to time but never figured it out (kinda difficult if you have the protagonist's name wrong...).
Awesome! Thank you again, I probably would have never found it myself.
