The Blue Ghost
by Marion Dane Bauer

Family history ripples through your blood...your appearance, the problems they had, the adventures they experienced, and maybe even your name. You may even have a ghost or two in your closet! Liz did.

Liz met the ghost while she was staying with her grandmother in the forest of Minnesota. But, why had the ghost come? What kind of ghost was it? A scary one? A dangerous one? How would you have reacted if you had been awakened in the middle of the night by a ghost calling your Liz was? Would you be willing to help the ghost?

Join Liz in a different kind of ghost story, one that ripples with family and its stories that are contained in the cabin where generations had grown up and at least one ghost, still lives.
