It was a job any kid would kill for: to play a role in the Historical Society's Haunted House Halloween fundraising event. Ellen Streater was thrilled to play Joan of Arc, burning at the stake. It was for a good cause—to benefit the eerie old Clayton House, soon to reopen as a museum. They said the house was haunted. Ellen didn't believe it—until she felt a strange, icy feeling when she touched the beautiful Fairylustre bowl. Then she saw the ghost in the mirror—a beautiful phantom who beckoned her into a nightmare beyond her wildest dreams.
"Entertaining and appealing, with lively and believable young people and a personable ghost." —School Library Journal

I thought that Horror at the Haunted House was the best book I've ever read. I thought it was good because it had a mystery that you figured out at the end, and I like that about some books. The other reason I liked it was I could not put down it because it was so interesting. That is how I rate a good book.

This book is a good ghost story,as so are many other ghost books-She sees a ghost,wanders what it wants,finds out,fixes everything,then it's over.I feel the book could have been better.Some parts needed more description and some parts just felt left out or something.Like Peg Kehret forgot to write a page or something like that...Not very unique.MARY DOWNING HAHN'S BOOKS ARE WAAAAY BETTER!!!READ ALL MARY DOWNING HAHN BOOKS!!
