Mary Downing Hahn

really knows how to tell a ghost story. I just read All the Lovely Bad Ones -- set in rural Vermont, Corey and Trevor discover that their grandmother's B&B is inhabited by menacing ghosts. (Children's literature writers really know how to propel a story without resorting to sex or violence.) This is a page turner for 5th grade and up.
