In this eerie and suspenseful YA, a teen girl discovers what connects her to the hotel she calls home as horrifying visions lead her to the truth.
Nell Martin is moving again, this time to the Winslow Grand Hotel, built in 1878. As Nell is settling in, strange things begin to happen. Doors lock of their own accord, writing appears on bathroom walls--and most horrifying of all--visions of a dead boy permeate her waking life. Thinking it was her mind playing tricks on her, she soon finds the past and the present colliding as she learns horrific details of a murder that happened at the hotel in 1905 involving a girl named Lea.
Nell and a mysterious bellboy must relive that day in hopes of finally breaking a curse that imprisons them both. And Nell discovers what truly links her to the history of the Winslow Grand Hotel.
I really liked a lot about this book. While there was a curse at this hotel, something that can be common in ghost stories like this, I feel like it totally played out differently than I would expect. The fact that the way to solve the curse wasn't completely spelled out from the beginning was something that kept me reading and hanging on every detail to see if I could figure it out, which I didn't. I really enjoyed the back and forth between the time periods and learning just what connection Nell had to the past. There were several scenes in the book that I could picture as they were described so vividly, probably would be perfect in a scary movie. I can't wait to have this book in my school library to recommend to my students when they are looking for a great scary ghost story.
