About the Author

Lindsay lives in Chicago, Illinois with her husband and three kids. She's loves coffee, Halloween, Disney World and things that go bump in the night! She is also the author of The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street. Visit her online at
--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal

Gr 4 Up-This suspenseful tale is yet another horror offering from Currie, whose protagonists are equally in love with books and mysteries. Ginny Anderson hears from her parents that their family is packing up and moving out for a monthlong retreat in Michigan, which means missing a highly anticipated mystery writer's workshop and leaving her friend Erica and their summertime plans behind. Her father is entrusted with the renovation of a legendary spooky mansion in Saugatuck on Lake Michigan, and her parents, Ginny, and her brother Leo find themselves in the heart of haunted happenings. Almost immediately, Agatha Christie-obsessed Ginny begins to witness moving objects, faces in the mirror, and shadows in the house's ballroom. Thankfully, Ginny enlists her brother and new friend Will in solving the curse of Woodmoor Manor, giving readers a succinct detective story and bantering dialogue for the paranormal-enthused. Currie serves up an appropriately tween horror story in staccato chapters with plenty of goosebumps. VERDICT A suggested purchase for upper elementary and middle school libraries with students interested in scary stories, and a natural step-up for those reading "Five Nights at Freddy's." Currie provides a genuinely creepy tale that begins with literary jump-scares and evolves into a decades-old historical mystery.-Rachel Joiner, Advent Episcopal Sch., Bessemer, ALα(c) Copyright 2011.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing.
By Therese M. Hubbell on October 4, 2021
This book was beautifully written. It starts like you were a child not wanting to do something and grew into a more grown version of your self realizing that there is more than just you in the world. Loved the story of Ginny growing and learning that sometimes things that go bump have a story.
