Summary, etc.:
Ginny is unhappy when her family moves from Chicago to upstate Michigan for the summer; her father has a job restoring a 1930s mansion, but there are rumors about Woodmoor and the forest next to it: rumors about strange mutant creatures; Ginny, an aspiring mystery writer, is soon half convinced that the rumors are true, because something or someone is haunting the house--and she plans to investigate, with the help of Will, the older boy who lives nearby.

    When it comes to Saugatuck, Michigan, the question isn't so much what lives in the woods, but rather, what lives in Woodmoor Manor? As bad luck would have it, 12-year-old Ginny has a whole month to figure that out, as her family will be staying in the clearly haunted old mansion while her father works on restoring some of its rooms. Although Ginny's upset about having to miss a mystery-writing workshop for this trip, it doesn't take the Agatha Christie–obsessed tween long to realize that Woodmoor has its own mystery that needs solving. Currie (Scritch Scratch, 2020) throws all the frightfully fun trappings of haunted-house tales at readers, who will soak up the stormy nights, town rumors, exploding light bulbs, creeping shadows, unsettling whispers—and let's not forget the mannequin in the bedroom. Ginny teams up with her older brother and a kid from town to do some ghost hunting and good old-fashioned sleuthing, ultimately discovering that empathy can go a long way toward healing the past's injuries. Light horror for larger collections. Grades 5-9. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
