Maisie Holt.

This is her book.

It's an old house, one her family plans to stay in for only a short while; but for Hannah Price, secrets soon come creeping out of every corner of Cowleigh Lodge.

First there's the old and dusty book of children's fairy tales that belonged to a young girl named Maisie. Hannah learns that the girl died mysteriously at age eleven in this very house nearly 140 years ago.

Then, when Hannah draws a portrait of Maisie, things begin to fall apart. The house seems to be reverting to its nineteenth-century form, and Hannah's not sure whether it or Maisie herself is sending her messages. Hannah must solve the mystery of Maisie's death, because if she doesn't help her, Maisie may never leave Hannah alone. . . .

Rebecca Wade has created a haunting story that will capture readers' imaginations until the very last page.

This book is SO good!! There's actually a book that comes before it called "The Theft & The Miracle" but you don't have to read it in order for this book to make since. This book does have some paranormal stuff in it, so if you don't like that kind of thing I'm sure how much you would like it. I don't normally read books with ghosts and things like that in them, but I thought that this book was so well written and interesting that I was able to overlook that fact. This book is full of suspense and mystery and I got scared quite a few times. Despite the scares, I thought that this book was very intriguing and a great mystery for younger kids and even teens! I highly recommend this book.
