Bought this book for my son's book report. The pages go from page 1-76, then back to page 29-60 and jump to page 109-140. The book is completely missing pages 77-108!!!!! My son's book report is due next week and I cannot find the book anywhere else.

Very very poor quality control over the assembly of this book!!!!!!!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Twelve-year-old Kenny Huldorf tells the story of how when he moved to Providence, Rhode Island, he discovered his old house was haunted by the ghost of a slave named Caleb.

After doing some research, he discovers that someone murdered Caleb. Taken back in time by the ghost to solve the murder, Kenny becomes entangled in a mystery that will test his wits, his life, and the life of his newfound friend.

Will Kenny manage to right the wrong and save Caleb by uncovering his murderer? Will Kenny be trapped in history or, even worse, be killed?

A chilling ghost story that will unnerve its readers like a good story should. With a surprise ending, memorable characters, and a well-developed plot, this book is by far one of Avi's best. Readers who like ghost stories, Avi books, and paranormal fiction will all enjoy reading SOMETHING UPSTAIRS.

"Something Upstairs: A Tale of Ghosts" is more of a time travel adventure story, than a ghost story. If you're looking for supernatural frights, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a historical-adventure told with an interesting storytelling method, then you've come to the right book. The reader will be so caught up in the time-traveling ghost story, that they won't realize they've just read a historical fiction - the premise is slavery. This book redeemed my faith in author Avi, solely by the way he chose to begin the book. Although the ending is abrupt and opened-ended, it's a good book for young readers to read over the summer. A sequel would have been most appropriate. I recommend.

I thought this book, "Something Upstairs" was a great book for kids to read all over the nation. Avi knows how to write a mystery that catch people's hearts, and minds through the power of his words. He set the time of the book between the 1800's and the present with Caleb being a boy from the 1800's and haunting a house which Kenny lives in, in the present time. Kenny seeks to help Caleb escape his ghostly predicament only to find he is in danger of losing his life if they follow through with their joint plan. Their dilemna takes a dangerous twist and the reader will not know the outcome until the very end of the book.
"Something Upstairs" is a book that you will not want to put down. Enjoy reading!
