LeAnna Shields | 3 comments I'm looking for the title of a book. It was a 5th or 6th-grade level reader (not sure if that qualifies for YA) it was either Fantasy or Paranormal. I remember it was set in the south about a young African American girl who sneaks out of her house to see if she sees a ghost. I remember the cover was blue with an African American woman in white. I think the title was Under the--- tree (or maybe it was bush) I read it in Sixth grade many years ago and the cover popped into my head yesterday.

Bayou Magic by Jewell Parker Rhodes?

(Google search - site:www.goodreads.com fantasy "middle grade" "african american" ghost girl south)

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

I added the genre and plot details to the topic header. Feel free to update it by clicking the small "edit" link after header - on the full desktop website, not the mobile website or mobile app.
