The Haunted Plantation (50 States of Fear: Alabama), by E.G. Foley. (Still free?)

"This book begins with an entire page of fun facts about the state of Alabama. I really enjoyed that the authors thought to include places to see, a food to try and other details both adults and children would find interesting and maybe even inspire a visit to a state a family or individual has never been to before. I love history and the Foleys outdid themselves as they made the civil war and its realities come to life through the ghosts. The first person perspective of twelve year old Collin is just the right fit for this tale. I love the whole idea of a collection of stories about each of our very unique states; for those that haven't experienced our country firsthand, these books give you a chance to have a glimpse of the individuality and stories unique to each state." -- Amazon reviewer

In the great American tradition of the spooky campfire tale, New York Times bestselling author E.G. Foley presents 50 States of Fear, a frightful-but-funny paranormal series for kids, set in all 50 States! From Civil War ghosts in Alabama to weird Wyoming cowboy legends, there’s always something to scream about in Ahhhh!-merica.

Welcome to Alabama, y’all! By day—sunshine and Southern hospitality. But by night, the ghosts of the Old South come alive…

Four nights in a haunted mansion? When 12-year-old Colin Donovan leaves New York with his mom and sister on a road trip to visit his sweet ol’ Southern grandma, he doesn’t expect to encounter—ghosts! Unfortunately, Grandma’s new apartment lies within the walls of Sycamore Hall, a mysterious old plantation house shrouded in local lore.

That night, Colin hears chilling spectral voices, comes face-to-face with a phantom—and gets scared nearly out of his wits! But nobody messes with his grandma. So, to protect her, the mild-mannered seventh-grader turns ghost hunter, vowing to find out who or what is haunting the place. Some of the restless spirits he faces still hold antique grudges. And none of them want their home invaded by a kid in a Yankees t-shirt!

"An engaging, poignant book that stayed with me long after I read the last word." -- Tracy E. Banghart, author of Shattered Veil

Since he drowned, Henry has remained with the same group of teenagers and he keeps wondering why. After all, what could he possibly have in common with a Mohawk-sporting punker from the 80s, a roller skater from the 70s with a thing for kimonos, and an English "rocker" from the 60s? Add to that, Henry can hear the other groups but he never sees them. Soon, Henry learns that his new friends all possess unique skills for making themselves noticed by the living. Is Henry’s group kept isolated because of their abilities? If so, are they considered gifted or seen only as a potential bad influence?

Before Henry can reach any conclusions, he witnesses his sister being kidnapped. He knows who did it, where she’s being held and what will happen if the kidnappers don’t get what they want. As the police chase false leads, Henry comes to realize that he’s his sister’s only hope. But for Henry to even have a chance, he has to convince a group of teenagers that dead doesn’t mean helpless.
