Kevin Lucia So, this is inspired by the Jumping Jack thread. I have a hazy memory of a YA book about a kid moving to a new town, befriending another kid, they get lost in a mine, and as they're finding their way out and eventually are rescued, the one boy - who is now a skeleton clutching onto the other boys ankle - turns out to be a boy who died in a mine cave in years ago, and now this boy has lead the boy to freedom, so his body can finally be put to rest. I can't remember if the live boy knew the other boy was a ghost all along, or just suspected. That's about all I can remember, but I've wanted to find this book for years!

Here is a link to another similar WTNOTB post, that ended up being the book Jenny suggested:
SOLVED: Children's/YA > SOLVED. Novel about teenaged boy in mining town, possible ghost story, possible YA novel, from 80's or early 90's

Kevin, around what year did you read this book? This will help narrow down the search.

Here's the Google Books preview of [The Fate of] Jeremy Visick (1981) by David Wiseman - Jenny & Deanne's suggestion - https://books.google.com/books?id=jGV... There are different cover images.
