The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
The day Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London marks a memorable occasion. For Rory, it's the start of a new life at a London boarding school. But for many, this will be remembered as the day a series of brutal murders broke out across the city, gruesome crimes mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper in the autumn of 1888.
Soon "Rippermania" takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory spotted the man police now believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him. Even her roommate, who was with her at the time, didn't notice the mysterious man. So why can only Rory see him? And more urgently, why has Rory become his next target? In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, full of suspense, humor, and romance, Rory will learn the truth about the secret ghost police of London and discover her own shocking abilities.
The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde
A ghost lived in the Canterville castle for a long time. They say he killed many generations there. Eventually, the house was sold. A new family moved to the castle. One day they sat down to dinner. Suddenly they saw a red stain on the floor. Later they learnt that blood stain belonged to the late wife of the ghost. Father cleaned the spot, but it appeared the next day. Every night the ghost wandered through the corridors bothering the family. Its chains were always clanking. One night when the ghost started walking again, father suggested him to lubricate the chain by oil. The ghost got very angry and decided to get revenge.
