Description
When 13-year-old Ali finds a torn photograph in the attic, she recognizes her mother Claire and her aunt Dulcie as teenagers. But who is the third girl, the one who's been torn out of the picture? Ali looks forward to spending the summer in Maine at Aunt Dulcie's lakeside cottage, and playing with her little cousin Emma, but a strange, angry girl named Sissy intervenes. She befriends Emma, encouraging her to be defiant and take risks, and she keeps talking about someone named Teresa—a girl who was once friends with Claire and Dulcie—who drowned in the lake years ago. The winner of both the Edgar Award and the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction, Mary Downing Hahn is renowned for her spine-tingling ghost stories for readers 9 to 12, as well as her historical tales featuring young people of various eras.

"Hahn weaves into the story some classic mystery elements such as a torn photograph, a waterlogged doll, dense fog, and an empty grave, all of which add to the suspense and keep the well-plotted story moving along to a satisfying conclusion."—School Library Journal

"Early on, Hahn drops heavy hints about who Sissy is. Guessing her identity won't spoil the suspense for readers, though; on the contrary, it will feed their sense of terror as events unfold... Hahn maintains the momentum with scenes that will chill readers as surely as a plunge in cold water. Young people will easily connect with sensitive Ali, whose search for family truths feels like 'good practice for crossing a minefield'."—Booklist

"More than just a terrific ghost tale, this atmospheric and ultimately touching page-turner explores the haunting consequences of a life-long lie."—Seattle Post-Intelligencer
