Something Upstairs
by Avi

Something Upstairs
Grades 4-7

Kenny has just received devastating news—he is moving cross country to Rhode Island from California. Upon moving to his new house, he notices a strange stain on the floor of his attic bedroom. What comes out of that stain will lead him on a hunt for a murder and a fight to get back to his own time period.

This book is a fast read at just 120 pages. The story takes place during present day as well as during 1800. Part ghost story, part historical novel and part mystery it kept me reading until the end trying to figure out what was going to happen. This book should appeal to both boys and girls.
