***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Kathy and Alicia attend the same middle school but hardly know each other. Alicia is on the student council and does everything she can to fit in. Kathy is a smart, rebellious, fashionable girl that isn’t very concerned about what other kids think of her, or her interest in the paranormal. So when Kathy discovers that Alicia is struggling with a terrible secret haunting, she appoints herself as the bossy lead investigator on the case.
The girls learn to work together to investigate the surprising history on Alicia’s home while having a lot of fun at the same time. With the help of Kathy’s eccentric aunt Marilyn and a nervous teacher named Mr. Walsh, the two girls from different backgrounds will face some unexpected twists and turns in their pursuit of the truth. And they may learn to make some rather creepy new friends along the way!
The author does a great job of capturing all the angst that goes along with this age group and how minor things seem to have such a huge impact on them and helping them focus on the things are should be important.
Throw in a paranormal twist to what would otherwise be just a well written “realization” tale and you have something quite special.
I especially loved the other worldly council who had one member that offered to eat a problem child! That actually made me laugh out loud (partly because in this case I am not sure it would have been the worst idea).
A fun book that doesn’t end in a neat “tie it in a bow” answer that is so typical when dealing with this genre. I am not sure if this will end up being part of a series or not, the door is definitely left open. There were also mentions of previous incidents that could be used (or perhaps already has and I missed it) a prequel to these events.
Over all a very well deserved 4 out 5 stars from me!
