The book Deep and Dark and Dangerous by Mary Downing Hahn is a fiction story (ghost story) about going on vacation with her cousin and Aunt. This book is about how Ali wants to go to a beach house with her aunt but her mother doesn’t want her to go. When her mother was young and went to the lake she had a bad time. One of my favorite parts is when Ali meets a girl who she doesn’t like. For anyone who likes mystery or enjoys a ghost story, you should try this book.

This book is about a girl named Ali going away for the summer with her aunt. When shes there she meets a girl named sissy. Sissy is not the nicest person. Wierd things , bad things have been happening around the summer home . But Ali discovers something about Sissy , something scary, something so shocking it will want to make you read more….. even though this book gets a little confusing it will all play out in the end, i love this shocking realistic fiction , mystery book. This book is a good book for mystery lovers.
