You have to use your imagination at the end to see if she dies or not."Karen LachelleElmwood Elementary"My favorite mystery in the Sweet Valley Twins and Friends series by Francine Pascal is 'Ghost in the Graveyard!'

Q: I have a heavy vinyl wallpaper in my kitchen. It is coming loose in several places at the seams. I tried pasting the seams, but it didn't work. Any suggestions short of removing the wallpaper?A: Wallpaper seams that peel away from the wall are often very springy, and special methods might be needed to keep them flat.Since most modern wall coverings are not paper, but vinyl, the best bet is to use a special vinyl adhesive. Adhesives designed for repairs are sold in toothpaste-size tubes at many wallpaper stores and home centers.
