The Ghost of Cutler Creek

by Cynthia DeFelice

Allie Nichols is back for her third ghost adventure! Following in the footsteps of the previous Ghost tales, The Ghost of Cutler Creek offers an exciting mystery for the 11-year-old "ghost magnet" to solve. When Mr. Henry asks Allie to dog sit for his golden retriever, Hoover, Allie is more than happy to accept. But when Hoover disappears, Allie is beside herself. In the meantime, she is contacted once again by a ghost who needs help; but this time the phantom creature is not what you might expect! Could there be some connection between Hoover, the ghost, and an unfriendly new boy in her class? Find out as you read this suspenseful story.
