    This was one of my favorite stories when I was little and one of the first books I can remember reading. As an adult, I'm sure the story would seem much more simplistic if I read it now then when I was six. For this reason I am basing my rating on how I viewed the book as a child rather than re-reading it. The book is intended for children and I think young girls would really enjoy it and I would definitely recommend it!

    The first book I ever fell in love with and I spent many years trying to find. I finally found a copy a few summers ago. Great book for young girls.

    This book is about a girl named Jennie, she moves to a new house and is lonly. She meets a ghost girl, that leads her to a discovery. I belive that Jennie meets this girl one day when she is sitting in her garden. This girl Leads Jennie into cave that is full of old artifacts and paintings. This girl eventually goes away, and Jennie tells her parents about the cave.

    This was my favorite book when I was young. I loved the story. And, oh how I cried when I read the end of the book.

    This was my favorite book growing up! I read it probably 50 times when I was little.

    I think my mom picked this book out for me from the Weekly Reader magazine when I was in elementary school, and something made me think of it recently. I think the ending is what stuck with me, how wistful and sad it was. It's still an entertaining kid's read today, and I'm glad I tracked it down (my original copy is in a box in another country somewhere, who knows where). I remember at the time thinking, mom clearly doesn't know my reading taste ;) but this book stands the test of time as an adventure-filled short novel for young readers. Although obviously the title and the cover give away Samantha's secret (which is a little odd, if you think about it), it's still an edge-of-your-seat read, and I think kids today would enjoy it as well. The dialogue is a little old-fashioned (and I don't just mean Samantha's, but Jennie's as well). What 10-year-old says things like, "You clever darling!" even in the 80s when this was written? I mean, for real. I was 10 in the 80s and I can guarantee those words never left my lips, LOL. But that aside, it's a read that obviously stuck with me TWENTY-EIGHT years later. If that tells you anything!

    So, for a child, this is a wonderful book. I remember, as a child, loving it, and my children were really into it and begged for a chapter each night. As an adult, you can see issues with it of course. There is the problem of parents not bothering to go out to meet their child's friend for ages. Really there are numerous other "leap of faith" things as well that as adults we might shake our head at, but children don't seem to question. As this is geared for children though, it works. Or worked, as the case may be, as this book is rather old and difficult to find now. If one does happen upon it though, children do really seem to enjoy it.

    I received the book for free through Goodreads Giveaways. It was interesting and made for kids! Many have so-called invisible friends, but this book went to another level with that. She was real and no one saw her but Jennie. I wonder why Ben did not tell her anything? He was there to be asked. It was nice she met Beth and became friends, and to explain "the rest of the story". A very good read!

    Story of Jennie Andrews, whose work-at-home artists parents have moved the family into a haunted house out in the country. Jennie is befriended by the ghost of a young girl who lived in their house.Fun read.

    I read young adult books looking for things for my grandchildren to read. This one was a little younger. a quick, easy read. I do like a little more story, but it was entertaining for a bit.

    Read this children's book to see if Madison would like it. Not terribly interesting or anything. At least not scarey.
