The Ghost of Carver Ranch
Winnie may not believe in ghosts, but she does believe in her ghost-hunting club’s special kind of magic—it’s ability to help her forget the move, her mom’s divorce, and the way California kids look at her when she talks. But even this refuge is fleeting; the principal has come to shut down Club S.P.E.C.T.E.R., leaving time for just one last adventure. Now, trapped in 1891 and on the lookout for a ghost, a witch, and a murderer, Winnie and the rest of Club S.P.E.C.T.E.R. must embrace the very quirks and talents that made them pariahs back home. The Ghost of Carver Ranch, complete at 60,000 words, is a realistic mystery/ghost book for tween readers. It has a team of quirky characters involved in a dark mystery. Much of the story is set against a detailed, historical backdrop.
