A.J. Paquette

Twelve-year-old Dahlia has spent the past fifty years as the resident ghost of Silverton Manor. Just when she's given a chance to "cross over" to the real world her house is inhabited by Oliver Day and his family. They have been told to prepare the mansion for auction and Oliver wants to live there permanently. Oliver and Dahlia take on unscrupulous ghost hunters and try to solve the mystery of her death. Paquette gives vivid descriptions of ghostly habits, hilarious views of ghost-run businesses and describes ghost trapping gadgets. An energetic tale with good-natured ghosts and a clever mystery. Ages 9-11
