One for Sorrow: A Ghost Story (Hardcover)
A frightening and satisfying ghost story set in 1918/1919 as WWI comes to a close and the Spanish Influenza epedemic causes thousands of deaths in the U.S. Annie Browne, a new student at the Pearce Academy for Girls, meets obnoxious, petulant Elsie Schneider on her first day of school. Elsie herself soon becomes a victim of the flu, and continues to plague sweet Annie from the grave, vowing to be her best friend forever. With help from a hospital caregiver, Annie finds a way to help Elsie rest in peace.— Leo
