The Ghosts of Mercy Manor by Betty Ren Wright

Eleven-year-old foster child (Gwen) is dreading to go and live in the Mercy Manor. But, when she does, she appreciates everything going on... (Except the fact, that her new beloved home is in fact haunted with a replay of a crime that was committed over thirty years ago!!!)
Gwen tells anyone that will listen. Though it's hard to do if no one believes you! With all her family not believing her (Except her younger sister Tessie) and "not wanting to hear another word." They think it's best for her to move out! But Gwen knows she must help this ghost!

Can Gwen solve the crime?

Can she convince her family to let her stay?

And can she save her family in the process?
