ALL THE LOVELY BAD ONES by Mary Downing Hahn







Looking for a good ghost story? ALL THE LOVELY BAD ONES has all the required elements. An old inn, two kids who think they know it all, a dark woods, and some blood-curdling screams all add up to a good, old-fashioned ghost story.

Travis and Corey have some tricks up their sleeves when they come to spend the summer at Fox Hill Inn. Their grandmother owns the quiet inn and seems happy with the few guests that happen her way. But when her two grandchildren learn that the inn is supposedly haunted, they decide to conjure up some spookiness of their own to get more customers at the inn.

Things quickly get out of hand when their innocent pranks bring the real ghosts out of hiding. It appears the history of the old inn includes some dead that aren't ready to call it quits. The restless spirits have a score to settle, and Travis and Corey end up right in the middle of things.

Mary Downing Hahn is a master of mystery. ALL THE LOVELY BAD ONES is an excellent addition to any middle grade collection in need of traditional haunted house stories.
