Two children, Harold and Elizabeth, live in a prison… a debtor’s prison, to be exact. It is part of a large structure once known as the Atlanta Stockade. While Harold and his family have been forced to move here because they are poor and can’t pay their bills… Elizabeth lived here long – very long – ago.
Harold still has to go to school, but Elizabeth? Well she spends her days haunting the halls of the building now called GlenCastle. Will she and Harold encounter one another? Will they share common ground in the past? In the present?
Based a a real place still standing in the Grant Park area of Atlanta, Georgia.
The Ghost of GlenCastle Prison incorporates history, geography, culture and cliffhanger chapters that keep kids begging for more! Fun activities, built-in book club and SAT words are in each book.
