The Girl in the Locked Room by Mary Downing Hahn. Published by Clarion

I buy every book that Hahn reads for my library, my students can’t get enough of the creepy and involved tales she spins. This time, a family has moved into an old house, one that has long stood empty. Jules isn’t as thrilled with the house as her parents, in fact she’s a little creeped out by the presence she feels behind a locked door on the top floor of the house. But as Jules begins to ;earn the history of the old house she now calls home, she becomes fascinated with the prospect of meeting someone who lived in the house a century earlier. Someone who might be able to help her open that locked door and answer the questions about that long forgotten family. Hahn never talks down to her audience, and there is NEVER a rational explanation for anything that happens in her books. Kids will be delighted with another winning ghost story
