    2. Recently, I finished this book After reading this book, I was comparing it to other scary books I have read in the past This book is interesting, but sometimes I found myself bored while flipping through pages I think that it would be better if they had events in the story Jenny, the main character, is haunted throughout the story She had fought through the hauntings, so the story does have somewhat of a happy ending.

    3. I love this author I like how as you meet the supporting characters, you are never quite sure if they are good guys or bad guys They do some nice things for the heroine, and then they are grouchy and you wonder if they are bad or not It really keeps you guessing until the end Wonderful story, and colorful characters Superb writing

    4. I like Wallace s children s books about orphans In this one Jenny, after her mother dies, is sent to live with a grandfather she has never heard of Nobody believes she is related to this rich family, and she becomes a servant with a room in the damp cellar However, everything turns out good in the end It s not actually about ghosts, though.
