Christina’s Ghost by Betty Ren Wright
Christina and her sister are supposed to be spending time with Grandma while their parents are off vacationing in Alaska, but it turns out the trip won’t work as Grandma is in surgery. Aunt Grace takes Christina’s sister, while Christine is forced to go with her Uncle Ralph.
Ralph is an unmarried, workaholic, who only cares about himself. He doesn’t like children, especially those who don’t look or act like how girls are supposed to. Yes, Christine has short hair, wears baggy boyish clothing, and is a tomboy.
Ralph is really weird just ignoring her, while expecting her to entertain herself in a house that is far from everything.
However, Christine gets more entertainment than she bargained for when she finds a ghost boy. There is something not right with the house, a murder occurred there years earlier. Is the boy trying to warn them or was he the instigator of the crimes?
At first Ralph thinks that Christine is making it up, but he soon becomes a chief officer in the ghost hunt.
Thoughts After Reading:
I thought it was an okay story. It wasn’t super developed and the mystery was pretty boring and bad.
But I did like how the relationship with the uncle and niece grew.
