Amber House by Kelly Moore

Sarah's mother grew up in Amber House but Sarah herself never visited the place until her grandmother died.  Now she is living there for a few weeks while her mother prepares to sell the house and all of its contents.  Sarah quickly becomes friends with Jackson who lives with his mother on the property and the two begin searching the house for the diamonds they have heard are hidden somewhere.  But Amber House has more secrets than legendary diamonds.  Sarah finds herself haunted by ghosts of her ancestors who seem to have information for her as she is pulled deeper into her family history and the history of the entire area where Amber House is located.  Not a bad supernatural mystery but the ending was pretty confusing which made the rest of the story less enjoyable to me, at least.
