The Blue Ghost

by Marion Dane Bauer
Illustrated by Suling Wang

Published by Random House, 2005
85 pages
ISBN: 0375831797

Ages 7-10

Nine-year-old Liz has strong connections to her family’s past. Her grandmother still owns a cottage that has been in their family for generations and she has always shared stories about its past inhabitants with Liz, who is one in a long line of girls in her family named Elizabeth. So when she sees a ghostly blue woman beckon to her and call her name in the middle of the night, she’s not afraid. She readily follows her right through the wall, into the next room. There she meets a girl about her age who is caring for a sick baby. How this girl connects to Liz’s past and how Liz plays a part in assuring her family’s future is part of the eerily satisfying resolution to a gripping, easy-to-read novel.
