Book Review - Rules for Ghosting
About the Book
Twelve-year-old Dahlia has always lived at Silverton Manor-having spent fifty years as its resident ghost. When Oliver Day and his family show up as house-sitters the day Mrs. Tibbs, a Liberator sent by the Spectral Investigative Council, arrives to teach Dahlia the proper rules for ghosting, Dahlia can't wait to make new friends. But the unscrupulous ghost hunter, Rank Wiley, and the crooked town councilman, Jock Rutabartle, plan to rid Silverton Manor of its ghosts and sell it to the highest bidder. With her home and friendships at stake Dahlia may have to break the rules of ghosting as quickly as she learns them to solve the mystery of her death and save the manor. Equal parts charming and eerie, this ghostly caper hits all the right notes for the middle-grade audience.
My Take on the Book
This was a great book that you can get into from page one and remain completely engaged throughout the book. The book is one that we could not put down and really went by much faster than many books we have reads together. While there are some mysterious and spooky parts, my girls loved it and really wanted more after we were done. The story was fun and the characters were memorable and my 3rd grader was able to also read much of it herself! A great book!
