Summary: (from goodreads) A Victorian garden, a fishing lure, and a ghost named John .

Absolutely nothing is going right for Max Green. His parents have just uprooted their family from Vancouver to the bleak suburbs of Toronto, he has no friends, and everybody at his new high school is ignoring him. To make matters worse, he's in love with an older girl who's completely out of his league.

When Max discovers a local library rumored to be haunted by ghosts, he's immediately drawn to it. With the help of some cryptic messages, he begins to piece together the identity of the teenage ghost and the mysterious chain of events that have connected its spirit to the building for over a century. But just who was John, anyway? Why has he chosen to contact Max? And what does an old fishing lure have to do with solving the mystery?

A good historical ghost story based on supernatural true occurrences at the Thornbill Village Public Library. The book is for Young Adults , but it is also entertaining for adults as well. The story is told using the perspectives of the two teenagers from their different time period and the ending catches you by surprise. It is spooky  without being gory or frightening, if you like to read about ghosts, this is a book to read.
