The children discover a ghost town near a swamp that was once a thriving summer lakeside community - inhabited by two welcoming eccentric seniors, who recount to them some of their memories from the turn of the century and help them create secret "clubhouses." I didn't like this as much as I did the author's trilogy, "The Saturdays," "The Four-Story Mistake," and "Spiderweb for Two," but it is a nice read.
