This novel is awesome. It has an ending that is so heart-warming and touching that it brought tears to my eyes. I have read it several times because I use it in my classroom each year, and the ending still has the same effect on me. Even though it is a good, chilling ghost story, it contains a theme and message which is a good life lesson, which is not just for children, but all of us. I would love to see this story as a movie.

I have been reading many of Mary Downing Hahn's books for children and YA and love her supernatural-themed stories, especially her ghost stories. The Old Willis Place is an atmospheric ghost story which centers around a pair of siblings named Diana and Georgie. They have been living on the Willis farm for many years, and yet have no parents or family taking care of them. The siblings fend for themselves and are used to being on their own. Things change when a twelve-year-old girl named Lissa moves with her dad to the farm. Lissa's dad is the new caretaker who is tasked with overseeing the maintenance of the Old Willis Place, and when he's not working, he's writing.

Diana and Georgie begin to 'borrow' Lissa's things and Lissa gets upset when her new bicycle, a favorite book, and her beloved teddy bear get taken. She writes about her angry feelings in her diary, wishing her dad would send her to school like other children instead of homeschooling her and keeping her isolated from everyone else. Diana is curious about Lissa and wishes to make friends with her, but her brother keeps reminding her of the 'rules' which can't be broken - rules such as not being seen by Lissa and her dad, not talking to anyone else, etc.

When Diana eventually breaks the rules and becomes Lissa's friend, terrible consequences follow. Something old and malignant is unleashed when Lissa breaks into the Old Willis Place, and secrets long buried come to light. The story moves quite slowly in the beginning, and only takes off after Lissa enters the Old Willis Place. Children ages 9-12 will enjoy this suspenseful ghost story.

Keeps you guessing,from the beginning the story isn't what it appears. Great mystery for young and old. There's always hope.

I ordered this book as I wanted to know the kind of ghost stories children are reading these days. I was not disappointed. It was a very good book even for a grandmother.

Have you wanted to go into the old house at the end of the road? Have you walked through the woods and heard footsteps in the leaves behind you? Have you sat on a bench in the fall sunshine and heard a sigh beside you? Have you wondered about spirits that may lurk around you? Have you stared at a pale, thin figure with dark, wide eyes and thought...real or dead? You will thoroughly enjoy this book of dead children, banshee screaming dead old lady, murder, snakes and creepy broken houses. A quick read...but best done in the day!

This is my 10 year old daughter's favorite author. In fact, Mary Downing Hahn was the author that got my excellent reader to actually WANT to read. Before she'd read her required minutes and be done. We tried Little House, Sisters Grim, American Girls, and all of it was meh to her. Mary Downing Hahn broke through that. She really enjoyed this book.

This is a good book for middle school kids to read. Not scary at all but enough to be I interesting.
I felt that the storyline was a bit "stretched" and took forever to get to the point of what the reader already knew, but it was still a good read.
