Ghost of the Overlook Diane Stringam Tolley

Are you afraid of ghosts? When her father takes over the management of a graceful old hotel, Tabby Pillay is forced to uproot, leave all her friends, and relocate to a town far away. Her life, at the age of eleven, is over. Then Tabby discovers the hotel isn’t quite the boring old building it appears to be, but is in fact famous for the small, shrouded figure that haunts its ballroom and, periodically, sends guests screaming in terror. A figure that, from the moment Tabby enters the building, follows Tabby’s every step. Is it a spirit simply seeking help? Or is something darker happening?
