Picture the Dead
I read the book Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin.  This book was about a girl named Jenny who was engaged to a rich man named William Pritchett.  When Will gets killed somehow in the war, Jenny becomes very upset, and so do Will’s parents, whom she is living with at the time.  Mr. Pritchett then says he wants to go see a medium. After they went to the medium, Jenny began to see signs, as if Will was trying to reach her.  Jenny then ended up falling in love with Will’s brother, but when she uncovers the truth about him, things come to a very bad ending.  I would recommend this book to anyone in 7th, 8th or 9th grade.  It can get a little creepy, so it should be meant for people who won’t be bothered by that.  This book was a little too predictable, but it was good all the same.
