The Ghost in the Blue Dress
R. A. Slone
Fifteen-year-old Jenna Moores from modern day Indiana struggles with her father’s recent death. Is he at peace? Is there an afterlife? Not long after his passing, a ghost from her childhood returns. When she was a kid, Jenna’s father convinced her that the ghost wasn’t real and that he would always protect her. She believed him. But now he’s gone. And the ghost wasn’t just her imagination. She learns that the ghost has confused her with its lost twin sister. The ghost grows stronger, and its threats move from alienating Jenna from her friends and family—to killing her. She must find the link the ghost has to her and to this world and destroy it before she, too, becomes a ghost.
