The Amber Cat
While two friends convalesce from chicken pox, one boy's mother tells them of a summer, long ago, when she was eleven--just their age--offering a story about a girl named Harriet who would mysteriously come and go at the beach. Who was Harriet? An underlying poignancy adds depth to this winning story with its surprise ending.

Review: The Amber CatUser Review - Elizabeth - Goodreads
Unusually for Hilary McKay, a ghost story. A pretty classic children's ghost story, with the ghost covering several generations. Very mysterious and satisfying. Sara and I are working our way backwards through her earlier books while waiting for the next one. Read full review
