"The Seance" by Joan Lowery Nixon

Lauren never really liked her adopted sister Sarah. Lauren was adopted herself butSarah was prettier than she was and got all the boys and attention. When Sarah told Lauren that she met a girl named Roberta who could talk to "spirits", Sarah got an idea that they should have a Seance with a bunch of their friends. Lauren didn't like the idea but said she would go because all her friends wanted her to be there. When it came to the night of the Seance everyone was freaked out about it and wanted to back out. They went on with it anyway thinking that nothing would go wrong. Everyone sat in a circle and Roberta started saying something under her breath. Then the light fell over and went out. Sarah screamed and said , "something is wrong here". Everyone got up and tried to look for a light switch. When they got the light on Sarah was missing. No one knew what happened to her. So the kids called the police and they came right away. He added up all the clues and told the girls to go home. A couple of days later Sarah was found dead in a pond. All the girls were getting letters that were threatening them. Soon another girl who did the seance was found dead in the same place they found Sarah. Can the rest of the girls find out answer to the mystery before it's too late?

I would rate this fiction book 5 out of 5 because it was very suspensful. I was excited to see what would happen next.
