By Dotti Enderle

Calkins Creek Books

ISBN: 978-1590787519

 

With his family in turmoil and fence-cutters destroying his farm, thirteen-year-old Jesse faces more than the stifling drought of 1883. Dwindling water supplies have driven desperate cattlemen to snip fences in order to water their herds—targeting Jesse’s farm several times. When a lone drifter arrives in town, he’s quickly hired to work the farm. It should be a relief to have the extra help, but Jesse suspects the man is more than just a hired hand and is determined to uncover his mysterious secret.

The Lost Girl

Written by Dotti Enderle

Published by Llewellyn Publishing

 

Twelve-year-old Juniper Lynch and her friends, Anne Donovan and Gena Richmond call themselves the Fortune Tellers Club. For the past two years they've helped each other using Ouija boards, tarot cards, and other forms of divination.

While crystal gazing in a bowl of water, they see the gaunt face of a young girl. The image is that of a missing child. And now the Fortune Tellers Club will stop at nothing, natural or supernatural, to find her.

 

Excerpt:

Juniper stared hard, not sure whether the future would appear at the top or the bottom of the bowl. But she knew it had to work. Her vision blurred a few times, but she never took her eyes off the water. That mysterious feeling filled her, and seemed to send electricity through her veins. Then it happened. An image rose to the top of the bowl as slowly and surely as the message at the bottom of her magic 8-ball.

"Oh my gosh," Juniper cried. "I see something."

The Ghost of Shady Lane

Written by Dotti Enderle

Published by Llewellyn Publishing

 

Creepy, run down, and possibly haunted, "The Boogerman House" becomes the object of Anne's fascination as she researches this historic landmark for a school assignment. Reports of eerie piano music and a ghostly "Gray Lady" have been circulating for generations. Are they true accounts of ghost activity or simply urban legend? Anne is determined to find out.

With reluctant help from Gena and Juniper, who are understandably scared of the spooky house, the Fortune Tellers Club works together to investigate the "Gray Lady." Is she the ghostly face captured in Anne's snapshot of the nineteenth-century home? Or perhaps she's the menacing spirit who attacked a frightened boy inside the old house years ago. Despite her own hair-raising encounters there, Anne won't give up on this mystery until she meets the "Gray Lady" for herself.
