Book Review - Ghosts of War: The Secret of Midway
About the Book
History comes alive -- with ghosts!
In the basement of his family's junkshop, Anderson and his friends Greg and Julie discover a trunk full of old military stuff. Including a battered navy peacoat from World War II, and when Anderson puts it on he finds a mysterious letter in the pocket. Curious, he takes the coat and letter home. But that's not all he brings home . . .
Later that evening the ghost of a World War II sailor appears in Anderson's room.
Anderson is completely freaked out. Who is the ghost and why hasn't he crossed over? But most importantly, what does he want with Anderson?
Anderson, Greg, and Julie set out to find the truth and are soon wrapped up in a mystery that's over seventy years old. But it quickly becomes a race against the clock as they search to put the clues of sailor's life together before he vanishes for good. After everything he gave for his country, can Anderson, Julie, and Greg solve the mystery of the ghost before he disappears forever?
My Take on the Book
This was a great story that brings together history and ghosts. The story was well written and engaging. I found the story to draw me in from beginning to end. I loved the characters in the book and I found that did not want to put this down until I was done and even though it was short. By the end I was looking forward to the next book in this series that should be coming out in the near future.
