The Visconti House by Elsbeth Edgar has a story line that is original and common, but it still amazed me. It has a little mystery, friendship, romance, and some of the issues normal teens go through today. The author had a really good ending; it left me wanting more, but it did end at exactly the right moment. The only thing I would add to the book is a little more suspense about the house and owner's history. It was wonderful, and I would definitely recommend it to grades five and above.
