Boo!!!! Did I scare you? Do you like being scared by a mystery? Then this is a book that is just right for you. It is about three cousins (Jeff, David, and Claire) who see a floating head outside their old school window. All of a sudden it vanishes! Then it all starts. They hear piano music… when there is no piano! They smell ginger bread cookies… when there is no stove! They see a SPOOKY picture. AHH!!!!!!!!!!! Help! I’m scared! Will they ever see a ghost? Or will they never be seen again?

I thought this book was… SPOOKY!!!! It was a very good and interesting book. Sometimes it spooked me and I tried to stop reading but I couldn’t. It was so good. I liked the character Claire Posey because she is always prepared and ready for anything. She also reminded me of myself. This book reminds me of all the books in the Cabin Creek Series because they are not just all different stories, they add on to the last mystery. My favorite part was when they made a new friend. Her name is Sophie Garcia.

I would recommend this book to anybody who likes a good scare once and a while. I would also recommend this book to these people because it is a great book and you never know what is going to happen. There are 130 pages plus a four page preview of the next book. If you like being spooked get this book today.
