Sarah | 1 comments Hi I'm looking for a book I read when I was younger. It was a young adult book about a girl, or teen who went to stay with family at a large house or castle. I remember the house was on some cliffs or in the mountains. She went out at midnight in her nightgown to explore the property. There was water down below. It could have also been a fantasy book, I don't remember. Please help me find it

And what year do you think you read this book? Did it seem new at the time, or like an older book?

Sarah, around what year did you read this book? A range of years is fine. This will help narrow down the search.

What's the time period of the story and the location (country, region)?
