Girls of Canby Hall #25 The Ghost of Canby Hall and #26 Help Wanted!
I find it odd that the school allows the girls to handle an antique diary without keeping a close eye on them.
Andy acquires the habit of hiding behind a large potted palm in the hallway to eavesdrop and apparently not one girl ever notices her while walking by. Exactly how big is this potted palm? It must be huge with lots of fronds.
I was hoping this book would be spooky, but it wasn't. The book has the same tone as the rest of the books.
I did not like this book.
In Girls of Canby Hall #26, Help Wanted!, Jane, Andy, and Toby stay at Canby Hall for the summer. They need jobs so that they can pay for their expenses, since the school will not be providing meals. Jane finds the girls a job where they must clean and repair a large house before the owners return. Jane is optimistic about the job, but the others fear that it is too much to handle.
Why would anyone hire three high school students to renovate and clean up a vacant house? They even have to purchase furnishings for the house.
I enjoyed this book as a nice change of pace.
