Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"When Henry Davis moves into the neighborhood, Barbara Anne and her classmates at Washington Carver Elementary don't know what to make of him. He's pale, small, odd. For curious Barbara Anne, Henry's also a riddle--a boy who sits alone at recess sketching in a mysterious notebook, a boy, she soon learns, who's being haunted by a ghost named Edgar. With the help of some new friends, this unlikely duo is off on an adventure to discover who Edgar was while alive and why he's haunting Henry now. Together, they might just help Edgar find what he needs to finally be at peace."-- Publisher's description.

    When Barbara Anne, a precocious fifth-grader with strong opinions and no filters, is introduced to shy and secretive Henry Davis, she is determined to find out what is going on beneath the surface. And when she discovers that Henry is being haunted by a young ghost named Edgar, she becomes only more inquisitive. Along with two classmates, Zack and Renee, Barbara Anne embarks on a quest to discover who Edgar is and why he is hanging around Henry's home, whether Henry wants them to or not. Siebel has a real knack for capturing the voices, actions, and emotions of young people. Although a few moments within the narrative seem overly quirky, considering the more serious notes of later portions of the novel, the overall plot structure is enjoyably haunting and mysterious. By turns hilarious and macabre, this serves up chills, laughs, and even some life lessons through the antics of an unlikely group of friends. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
