This is the first in a series of a young boy and a special companion who work together with friends to solve mysteries. After a ghost unrepentantly appears in Jengo Albright’s bedroom, an unlikely relationship develops between the sixth grader and the spirit. When he and a friend set out to look for Maddy, Jengo’s missing sister, he has reason to believe the ghost can help. Excitement builds as the search leads to surprising and scary places. Rather than a horror story, however, it is a sweet ghost story that will leave you smiling. The quick pace will keep you turning pages.
