Look for Me by Moonlight

Look for Me by Moonlight is by Mary Downing Hahn. Another creepy tale by this master of young adult creepiness. When Cynda's mom and stepfather head for Italy, she goes to stay with her dad and step mother at their old inn in Maine. Once there she hears rumors that Underhill is haunted by the ghost of a girl who was murdered there years before. Then Vincent Morthanos shows up and Cynda is captivated. Cynda is blind to his evil, is there any hope for her? A classic tale of horror from Hahn. This story makes use of the poem The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes, a great tie in if you've never read this classic poem.

Ratings: 8th grade - 10 out of 10.
