The Presence: A Ghost Story by Eve Bunting

A brutal car accident that claimed the life of her best friend has left seventeen-year-old Catherine in a state of shock and severe depression. She longs to move forward with her life, but feels she can't until she is somehow assured of her friend's forgiveness. On a Christmas visit to her grandmother in Pasadena, a mysterious and handsome stranger approaches Catherine at church claiming that he can put her in touch with her dead friend.
Catherine is wary of the stranger's claims and his ghostly appearance but feels he may be the only key to escaping her past. She tells no one of the meeting but is approached by an elderly woman who warns her of the stranger's powers. The woman's teenage diary and eerie rumors surrounding other troubled girls who have disappeared from the church community leave Catherine fearful of the stranger's true intentions. She realizes she must find some way to confront this supernatural presence as well as the ghosts of her past.
A classic ghost story from one of Clarion's most distinguished authors. Eve Bunting brings a new edge to the genre of suspense by interweaving contemporary issues with sharp and frightful storytelling.

This is a really good book. I was in 5th grade when I read it and I'm now in 8th grade and I still remember every detail about it. That's how good of a book it is. I highly recommend this book.

I LOVED this book!! It keeps you hanging till the very end of the book. It's well planned and well thought out. Some parts are creepy but that just adds to the suspence! A must read for people that love thrilling suspence books.

I loved this book. It was creepy and I could almost feel the characters fear. It would be so weird to find out that you were being stalked by a dead boy.
