Grade 4-6?A fluffy but briskly told tale of sibling rivalry. The bane of 12-year-old Charlotte's existence is her younger sister Jenny, whose musical talent makes Charlotte feel jealous, inadequate, and left out. The older girl's longing to have a special quality of her own is fulfilled when she encounters a ghost while visiting her grandmother. The ghost, Rose, pulls Charlotte back in time to when Gran was young. There she becomes caught up in the mystery of who Rose is and why she wants her help. She discovers that Rose was Gran's older sister, who had never been mentioned because she died tragically. Charlotte can't stop Rose's death, but she does prevent Gran from dying, and ultimately realizes how much her own sister means to her. This predictable book is slightly better than others of its ilk because of the judicious use of creative plot developments. The characters are the stereotypes one expects to find in such formulaic fiction, but the story is involving and the balance of predictability and invention will satisfy. Unfortunately, the cover is bland and stiffly rendered. Still, if you're looking to pad your paperback collection or need sibling-oriented fiction, this is a decent choice.?July Siebecker, Hubbard Memorial Library, MA
