I thought this book was really good because Mary Downing Hahn used descriptive details to describe Gull Cottage; I also liked this book because I love scary mystery books and you can try to solve the mystery while you’re reading. My favorite part was when Ali turned the photograph over and saw the T; this got me thinking “Who is the girl?” I also thought “Why was the photograph ripped?” after a little bit reading. My favorite character was Sissy, a girl that Ali met at Gull Cottage. I liked how Sissy was mean at first then turned nice after a little reading.
I recommend this book to children who like both ghost and mystery books. Ali is a very adventurous and courageous character. If you get scared easily, this would not be a good book for you. Is Gull Cottage as fun as Ali thinks it is?
