Book spotlight for Middle Grade Carousel October 2022: Ghost Stories features the book ELEANOR, ALICE, AND THE ROOSEVELT GHOSTS by Dianne K. Salerni.

Society has adapted to deal with the ghosts that “erupt.” Some are harmless enough and fade over time, and some are even friendly. But everyone’s wary of vindictive ghosts, who can curse and kill.

Eleanor and Alice are cousins in the big, boisterous Roosevelt family. They don’t necessarily get along, but when a new ghost erupts at their beloved Aunt Bye’s house, both girls want to quickly find out whose ghost it is so they can encourage it to dissipate.
