The Ghost in the Third Row Summary

For sixth-grader Nina Tanleven, nothing is scarier than auditioning for a play at the famous old Grand Theater. But Nina changes her mind when she climbs on stage to audition - and sees a ghost sitting in the audience! Then, even stranger things happen. Scripts are ripped up, sets are knocked down, and everyone fears the ghost wants to stop the play. Everyone, of course, except Nina and her best friend Chris. They discover that fifty years ago, a gorgeous young actress was murdered on the Grand Theater’s stage. According to legend, the actress has haunted the theater ever since. Nina and Chris think they know what her ghost wants - but it will take some spooky ghost hunting to prove it! Packed with fun-filled adventure and captivating mystery, Bruce Coville’s delightful story starring Nina Tanleven - America’s youngest ghostbuster - is a popular choice for young listeners.

    Sixth-grader Nina Tanleven knows that old Mrs. Watson’s spike-roofed, dark green house is haunted. She feels the ghost as soon as she walks toward the faded porch. But when Nina climbs the stairs to look for an antique wardrobe in the tower room, she has to wonder what else the spooky mansion is hiding. Soon Nina is in the company of a ghostly crying child, a long-dead artist, and a gruesome, hypnotic painting. To break the dark spell surrounding the house, she will have to join forces with these shadowy spirits.
