Book Review - Legend of the Ghost Dog

About the Book
A thrilling mystery set against a stark landscape and the inspiration of Nome's real-life dog hero, Balto.

Twelve-year-old Tee has just moved to Nome, Alaska, with her writer father and sullen little brother, Jack. Jack isn't happy about the idea of living in the middle of nowhere, but Tee and her dog Henry are thrilled -- so much open space to run around and sniff!

But on a walk near their new house, Henry spots something that has him seriously spooked. Tee sees a mysterious shadow, and it seems to be following them. Have they disturbed a restless spirit? And what other secrets might this dark place be holding?

My Take on the Book
I am always open to a new mystery and this was definitely one that kept me engaged from beginning to end. Though the book was written for young readers, I have to be honest and say that it was fun and the characters were light and engaging. I enjoyed how well the author developed the relationships between the characters and after turning the book over to my daughter, she also stated that it was a lot of fun to read, and she hoped that there might be another book with the same characters in the future! This was a great book that I highly recommend for all readers!
