Thornhill by Pam Smy

This is a different story.  It has a ghost from the past and a little girl who's almost a ghost in the present.  The author does a great job of drawing you into the story.  The illustrations are done in black and white and they make you feel ghostly.  It's an abandoned house next door that abuts the garden below that draws Ella in...

Roaring Book Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published August 29th.

Ella can see Mary and she wants to make friends with her.  Mary is shy and elusive but Ella keeps trying.

Mary's story is sad and shows how badly bullying can affect someone.  Ella is home alone a lot because her mother is dead and her father is working.  She decides to try to figure out Mary's story.  There's a diary she can read to let her know what happened.  All except the ending.  Ella should have left the diary alone...
