Ghost Ship by Dietlof Reiche
This book was originally published in German and translated into English. This ghost story takes place in a small town in Maine. Vicki, a 12-year-old girl, is spending her summer waitressing in her father's must-see tourist attraction restaurant, Ye Olde Seashell Room, that has seashell covered walls and a two-hundred-and thirty-year-old figurehead from the lost ship named Storm Goddess on its' wall. She befriends Peter, a tourist of her age, and strange things immediately begin to happen. The bay turns dry one night and the ghost ship appears fully intact. While the mayor sees opportunity for more tourists to come to his town, Vicki and Peter see ghosts and the need to solve a mystery that involves a hanged man and a curse. Both girls and boys in grades 4-6 will enjoy this plot filled with pirates and gold.
