THE SCREAMING STAIRCASE by Jonathan StroudUnknown-3

Our Middle School students love ghost stories and this, the first in a new series called Lockwood & Co, is a good one. It takes place in an alternate London where haunts are common and sometimes terrifying. The malevolent ones need to be hunted down and put to rest. The only problem is that adults can no longer see them. It is older children who the expert ghost hunters. Three orphaned children form Lockwood & Co, a ghost hunting agency, and it is essential they succeed to survive.
