I found my childhood copy of this book while home from work, and it was the perfect anecdote to food poisoning! A well-told family mystery with a likeable young protagonist just coming into her own. I remember being genuinely creeped out as a kid reading this, but as an adult can appreciate the skill of the writer in weaving some very complex family drama into an enjoyable mystery read for kids.
Jul 22, Jessica rated it really liked it Shelves: childhoodfavorites. Annabelle spends the summer with her cousins, and discovers that she is the spitting image of a young woman who, fifty years ago, was involved in a mystery that may have ended in murder. A ghostly cat leads Annabelle to the clues, as she is mourning the death of her own cat and dealing with the changes in her life as her mother remarries. Chilling without being too scary I was easily scared as a kid , and certainly a page turner!
Jan 29, Nancy rated it it was ok. Pretty good. Young girl who is quite tall sent to stay the summer with relatives she doesn't know. This one is not the typical supportive relatives help child to bloom. Poor kid has to deal with very unkind cousins and an uncle who rejects her. I found much of this uncomfortable and there wasn't really enough time at the end to relax in her new understanding and growth. I read this so long ago that I just remember being attracted to the book by the picture of the eerily glowing cat on the cover and not a whole lot about the plot.
I will be reading it again one of these days so I can review it. Mar 17, Allison rated it really liked it. My mom found this book for me when I quite young because I used to love cats. I remember reading it over and over and getting really freaked out. I pulled it out again and still enjoyed it all these years later, though I don't know if from nostalgia or the book's merit as a good ghost story.
Apr 01, Amanda rated it liked it Shelves: mystery , 3-star-books , young-adult. This book was intresting, but at some parts boring.
This book to me forever to get through. It had a weird ending that kind of confused me, but it still was a good book. I don't remember a lot of details about it but it is worth a read. So I recommened it to kids about 10 and up. Dec 05, M-Tear rated it it was amazing Shelves: used-to-own. M-Tear is such a big fan of Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe, and this slice of greatness captured it awesomely without overdoing it! Oct 30, Patricia added it. I'm reading this book because my 7 yr, old granddaughter asked me too.

I love this book because when i first read it about 10 I was scared while reading it! I loved this when I was eleven. I can't say it was literature, but I was eleven. Cut me some slack. Mar 18, Cheri Howard rated it liked it. This book scared the pants off me as a child Feb 19, Stephanie A. Pretty much the perfect ghost story, with a rural Wisconsin setting, an abandoned house, a genuine and genuinely scary!

I haven't read this since I was 10 or 11, but I read it many, many times and loved it hardcore. It gets five stars for that. Aug 17, Kate rated it really liked it.

Very spooky! Aug 28, Amanda Coppedge rated it it was amazing Shelves: mg. A big favorite from childhood, that I read over and over and over. I reread it as an adult and it was just as good. I read this book when I was 7 and for months I was convinced every shadow was out to get me ;D. Jun 18, Ow1goddess rated it really liked it. This book was really pretty creepy.

For practice, she began typing remembered stories which led to her inventing stories. Annabel and her cousins also visit a nearby haunted house, and once again Annabel sees the image of a cat.
Annabel soon begins sleepwalking and having nightmares about the old woman who once lived in the s Eleven-year-old Chicago native Annabel Peterson is staying at her great aunt and uncle's house in the Wisconsin countryside for the summer, along with her cousins, which she is not happy about.

It is supposedly a young people's book, but it worked for me.
She is a wonderful writer and I really "saw" her characters. Suspenseful and the ending does not disappoint. Highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read or needs encouraged to be. It would also be appropriate for reading to children. Jul 01, Sharyl Smith rated it really liked it. Very creepy- good quick read. Good for teenagers. May 10, Gale rated it liked it Shelves: mystery , boo-ghost-witch , cat-mania.
Already resentful that her single mom just wants to get rid of her so she can party with her beau, Annabel discovers a bunch of unkind cousins who regularly summer with the old folks--their grandparents in fact. Her first morning there she is awakened by the plaintive sound of a cat crying from the woods.
Having just lost her own cat in Chicago, she is moved by its obvious distress to help. Annabel's search for the mysterious and beautiful cat triggers the memory of her old relatives--stirring up bitter feelings of doubt, family shame and perhaps even guilt. All because 40 years ago two women disappeared without a trace, which set suspicious neighbors' tongues wagging: an old maid schoolteacher named Julia Craig, and her young niece, Annie.
Are the ghosts of these women plus the girl's cat trying to contact Annabel-- and is it because she so resembles the lost girl? Her Uncle Axel scowls at all references to the painful past; could he be protecting an ancestor, covering up family guilt? And why are her cousins so mean to her? Todd especially has a definite nasty streak; I admit to hoping that he would get his! Annabel's only friends there are the family dog, the ghost cat which does not provide much comfort, but at least offers incentive to explore and Old Pa who is everybody's great-grandfather.
In his prime he was the boss of a logging crew, but now he is reduced to near senility as an unwilling shut-in, whose every move is dictated by his over-protective daughter. There is an old mystery to be solved, of course, and ghosts to lay to rest--literally. But once the truth is told, will the family name be cleared or convicted of further shame? Some heavy task for the so-tall-that-she-slouches shoulders of Annabel, whom the ghosts think is Annie come to life.
Can ghosts manipulate the weather? Do they want Revenge, Justice or Peace? It's all up to Annabel. This is her summer to grow up and Old Pa's to come into his own again. A good yarn with an interesting plot and some character development. Annabel must come to terms with her mom's boyfriend, while Old Pa--that unlikely hero-- will briefly enjoy the limelight. A good, imaginative read which will keep the interest of both girls and boys.
October 11, I welcome dialogue with teachers. Jun 16, Bonnie rated it really liked it. This book was surprisingly good. I'm trying to build a collection Anyway, at first this book was a little confusing and boring. I really wanted to know the exact familial ties the characters had to each other, but it got confusing and so I gave up. I skipped a little bit, but then This book was surprisingly good. I skipped a little bit, but then it got pretty good and I was unable to put down the book until the ending.
The ending was also a bit confusing, and felt somewhat unresolved. Ultimately the main mystery is resolved, but it comes with a price. I don't want to give it away, but I was honestly saying 'What!

I like the protagonist, and most of her family. The relationships are far from simple, and are explored in quite a bit of depth. There aren't many cats in a book called Ghost Cat Overall, I enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to someone who likes a mystery with good writing, interesting characters and some 'feels' moments.
I probably wouldn't read it again, because it was a little slow in places, and I also have 63 other books to go through Jun 26, Heidi rated it really liked it Shelves: kids-books , supernatural , re-read. I bought this book at a school book fair when I was in fourth or fifth grade, a time when I was obsessed with ghost stories, and Ghost Cat proved to be the first and, so far, only book I'd ever read that scared me too much to finish it.
I was so terrified that I abandoned the book for at least a year before I could attempt it again. I finished it, but the memory of its creepiness stayed with me so much more clearly than any of the characters or the plot, so I decided to revisit it as an adult I bought this book at a school book fair when I was in fourth or fifth grade, a time when I was obsessed with ghost stories, and Ghost Cat proved to be the first and, so far, only book I'd ever read that scared me too much to finish it.
I finished it, but the memory of its creepiness stayed with me so much more clearly than any of the characters or the plot, so I decided to revisit it as an adult to see how it holds up. Surprisingly well, it turns out. The plot concerns a teenager whose mother ships her off to spend the summer with distant relatives in rural Wisconsin. She feels out of place, lonely, and rejected by her mother, and on top of that she begins to see and hear strange and spooky things.
Including, naturally, a ghost cat. A decades-old family mystery is slowly unraveled. There is a very effective creepy atmosphere created in the book, and it was immediately apparent to me during the re-read which was the fateful scene that scared me away from this book as a child. Still delightfully creepy as an adult twenty years later. A good supernatural mystery for middle-grade kids, well-written enough to provide a couple of hours of entertainment for an adult.
