The Page Turners Book Club-Dying to Meet You by Kate Klise

Dying To Meet You is the first in the 43 Cemetery Road series.  It's an "illustrated mystery" about Ignatius B. Grumply, who moves into an old mansion only to find it's already inhabited by an abandoned boy and a (friendly, non scary) ghost.  It's a SUPER quick read.  I liked it for these girls because it introduced them to another way that someone can author a story; as a collection of letters, emails, floor plans, and pictures. 

And it was perfect for October (Halloween!) because of the ghost.  Again, not a scary ghost.  The girls all enjoyed this book and many of them have continued to read the rest of the series or other books (written in the same style) by Kate Klise like Regarding the Fountain.  They loved discussing the little details like the punny character names throughout the book.
