On the Day I Died
Stories from the Grave
Candace Fleming

Who doesn't love a good ghost story?
This book is literal 'ghost' stories.  The ghosts are the ones telling their stories to real live Mike Kowlaski.  Yes, it happens late at night at an old run down cemetary.
All the stories are skillfully bound together.  Mike is the individual chosen to hear and repeat the stories of these sad ghosts, thereby allowing them to 'move on'.  All the ghosts are teenagers from various periods in Chicago's history.  Yes, one even lived in the 20's during the reign of Scarface himself.  Capone makes a cameo in one of the stories.  Kids are going to love this story!!
Some of the stories are better than others.  More than one may bring a tear to your eye, one or two may have you rolling your eyes, burt all are sad.
The nine stories are spooky and delightful at the same time.  Readers will enjoy this compilation of eerie stories from Candace Fleming.
