Ghost of Fossil Glen by Cynthia DeFelice

The Ghost of Fossil Glen gripping ghost story and murder mystery by a popular and highly regarded author.

Allie Nichols knows she's being pursued by a ghost. But her friend Karen calls her a liar and doesn't want to hear "stuff like that." It is Allie's old pal Dub who listens eagerly as Allie tells him about a voice that guides her safely down a steep cliff side, the face in her mind's eye of a girl who begs "Help me," and a terrible nightmare in which that girl falls to her death. Who is the girl? Is she the ghost? And what does the ghost want from Allie?

As Allie discovers that her role is to avenge a murder, she also learns something about friendship, false and true, in the latest chilling tale from best selling author Cynthia DeFelice.

'Go ahead,' said the voice. 'Let go. You can do it.' A feeling of calmness and confidence began to come over Allie. 'It will be all right.' Allie believed the voice. Still, she hesitated. 'Now. Before you're so tired you simply fall.' Yes, thought Allie. Now. Sixth grader Allie Nichols is a curious fossil hunter, whose hobby one day puts her in grave danger of falling from a steep cliff. It is then when she first hears a ghostly voice that prevents her from panicking and falling to her death. None of Allie's friends or family believe her 'ghost story' except her life long pal Dub. Together, they discover the diary of Lucy Stiles, a girl who was murdered at Fossil Glen some years earlier. The old diary gives Allie more facts about the girl's death. Foolishly, she continues to investigate the crime, which eventually puts her OWN life in danger. Will Allie and Dub find the killer of Lucy Stiles? Read the book, The Ghost of Fossil Glen to find out. I really liked this book because the beginning of the story puts you right in the action. I also liked the way the author put a mental image in my head on what was going on with the main characters. Another thing that made this book so good was that Allie finds interesting clues in every chapter. This makes you not want to put the book down. The only thing I didn't like about this book was that it was very short and I personally like long books. This book is an exciting mystery, which people of all ages would enjoy. So, if I was to rate this book on a scale from one to ten; I would give it a nine.

The Ghost of Fossil Glen is a great ghost story.I love how the story relates to the author's childhood a little bit.I am not even done with the book yet and I all ready recommend it to readers all over.Don't read it if you don't like scary stories.This book does get kind of scary.I will give you a little summary of it without telling any secrets.Allie Tompson is on the side of a cliff in the glen.She can't get down.Then she hears a voice.It sounds like one she heard before, she just doesn't know who it belongs to.It tells her how to get down. When her mom gets home she tells Allie she has a desk for at her store from the Stiles house.The Stiles don't live there any more.No one does.Its just there. In the desk there is a secret compartment.In the compartment Allie finds a dairy of a girl and her life with her mom and her mom's boyfriend.This little girl dies.[I can't give you the name it would tell you who the ghost is.]She is on a cliff in the glen and she falls.The police can't find her body.They know she is dead. How did she die?Read 'The Ghost of Fossil Glen and find out!

Cynthea came to my school a few years ago just before this book came out and she told use a little about the book, at that moment I knew it was going to be my favorite book. I haven't got a copy of this book in my hands since Nov. last year and I loved it. This is a great mystory I got shivers while reading it. I totaly recommended this book for any one in 2nd grade to 6th grade. It's the best book!!!!
