Review: This ghost story from masterful storyteller Patricia McKissack fills a niche for a short ghost story for "brave" children. Set on Friday the 13th in October, 1741, this is the tale of a greedy landlord who seeks to evict a poor widow from his rental house. With pitch perfect illustrations and haunting language, this splendid "jump story" is truly eerie and will make many jump right out of their seats!
