Title: THE CASE OF THE CAROUSEL GHOST
Fourteen-year-old Kate O’Reilly takes on a new ghost case at the local amusement park. At first it looks like a simple poltergeist, but when Kate rides the new carousel, she finds herself transported back in time and into the body of Isabelle, a ghost who died 80 years ago. In fact, each time Kate rides the carousel, she relives another snippet from Isabelle’s life. Rumor has it that Isabelle’s husband, a famous carousel carver, murdered her and put her body inside one of the horses.
It’s Kate’s most complicated case yet, but it’s still easier than dealing with real life where her best friend is ignoring her and the most obnoxious boy in school won’t leave her alone. Luckily Jack, a ghost and former vaudeville performer, is always there to lend a helping hand or a wry comment.
Kate rushes to solve the case before the carousel horse is put in the park museum. Otherwise, she won’t be able to collect her fee and Isabelle will be doomed to haunt the carousel forever.
