The Vanishing of Katharina Linden

The Vanishing of Katharina Linden
Helen Grant
Fiction G7673v
Ten-year-old Pia, who lives in the quaint German village of Bad M√ľnstereifel, is having an especially difficult year in school. Ever since the gruesomely freakish accident that claimed her grandmother's life, she has been unmercifully teased by her classmates. Forced to socialize with the other school outcast, StinkStefan, Pia is only able to forget her troubles when their kindly neighbor, Herr Schiller, invites them over for hot chocolate and beguiles them with ghost stories. When young girls start disappearing from their small town, many parents become hysterical, but Pia and Stefan decide to find out who has taken them. (Booklist)
