Middle Grade Fiction:

​Ghost at the Grand

Stefanie Wass




Twelve-year-old Mia is excited to escape her overprotective mother and vacation with her grandmother at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan.


Charlie, a rising seventh grader and lifelong islander, dreads tourist season. She’s stuck grooming horses, scooping manure, and helping her grandpa manage his island carriage business.

Mia and Charlie, forced together when their grandparents start dating, aren't sure they have anything in common. But when thefts, power outages, ice cold showers, and mysterious, neon yellow pool water are linked to ghost sightings at the Grand Hotel, the girls are united in a quest to save Charlie's family carriage business and Mia's vacation.
