    Not horrible, written for YA The MC was 15 I figured the mystery out after the first 30 pages, the parents were unreal The side characters dropped in from nowhere and dropped out almost the same way There were a lot of things brought up that were never ironed out It took me 5 days to finish a 180 page book Hey, it was free, and I was looking for something I knew nothing about, and I got it Meh

Nixon 137 I told you all about the people we met and what they said about the evil in Graymoss , and I told you about the kids and how I changed my mind Nixon , p.136 In this book the theme in this book could be to not be selfish Sometimes it may not be want you want but it s not all about you and you must look out for others too This may be the theme because Lia at first was very selfish but when meeting those kids so wanted to care for them instead I used the reading strategy Visualize when she would describe the structure of Graymoss and the furniture in side of the land that surrounds it I saw the columns and the little bit of wearing away of the house because of its age I also used the strategy predict I used when she was trying to solve the answers and why the book would have anything to do with the evil that haunted them I also used the reading strategy use prior knowledge when they she was talking about the Edgar Allan Poe stories We read some of the stories in English class and I used what I already knew about the stories to help predict what may be the answers.Finally I loved this book I loved the suspense when you don t know what s going to happen next and you don t know what the answer is and the answer is so unexpected Definitely recommend

    This book is not the book that makes your skin crawl or makes you whip your head around, looking to see what lurks in the shadows Despite it s title, this is not a ghost story meant to frighten you This is a mystery book that simply involves ghosts That being said, this book was a good read I enjoyed trying to solve the mystery of who was haunting the Graymoss plantation and why with the main character I enjoyed the fact that the author actually tied in Edgar Allen Poe stories as the clues This book is not the book that makes your skin crawl or makes you whip your head around, looking to see what lurks in the shadows Despite it s title, this is not a ghost story meant to frighten you This is a mystery book that simply involves ghosts That being said, this book was a good read I enjoyed trying to solve the mystery of who was haunting the Graymoss plantation and why with the main character I enjoyed the fact that the author actually tied in Edgar Allen Poe stories as the clues for solving the mystery that was brilliant I am a big fan of the story she chose that was correlated to the mystery The book had moments where Nixon repeated herselfso than needed, but all in all, it was a good book

    This is a book my 11 year old was interested in reading She had two chapters left and so I picked it up to see what it was about The story started out promising, but I figured out the ending well before the main character, which is always a little disappointing There were phrases that were repeated over and over in the text which droned on and on and on, and the ending didn t come soon enough The big showdown at the end was rather anti climatic, but as far as not so spooky, spooky stories This is a book my 11 year old was interested in reading She had two chapters left and so I picked it up to see what it was about The story started out promising, but I figured out the ending well before the main character, which is always a little disappointing There were phrases that were repeated over and over in the text which droned on and on and on, and the ending didn t come soon enough The big showdown at the end was rather anti climatic, but as far as not so spooky, spooky stories goes, this is a good one for a pre teen reader
