Ghost Writer is a delightful novel, a mystery about a young girl finding herself with a little help from a ghost who resides in her seaside cottage. The main character, Nanette Burton, has a great voice and it's fun to read her plucky quips as she interacts with the helpful yet cantankerous ghost. This is the kind of book you want for a rainy day, to snuggle up with under the covers and finish in one sitting. I did! Afterwards, you will be uplifted having learned about touching relationships and will feel as positive as Nan did in the end about life and the future.
