The Ghost Girl

Katarina Genar

Past and present weave together in the old summer house by the sea, where Anna has just moved with her parents. Katarina Genar delivers an evocative and exciting summer adventure for 9-12 years.


“Have you seen her yet? The Ghost Girl? The girl who was locked up in your house?” ask the children in the village.

Anna does not want to listen to rumors. She does notice however that something is not as it should be in the house her family moved in. It feels like someone is watching her. Night after night, she dreams of a girl in old-fashioned clothes and shiny black shoes – it’s as if the girl has something to say to Anna, but what?

She would rather leave the house and the village and move back to her best friend Karolina in town. But Karolina barely seems to have time to respond to text messages anymore. And then suddenly there is this new girl Siri who seems to take a lot of interest in the house and in the ghost girl and practically invites herself in.

Katarina Genar has the rare ability to deliver a real adventure in a short and easy-to-read format. Even a reluctant reader – boy or girl – can read, enjoy and dive into this exciting magical story.
