I received this book for advanced middle schoolers: Ghostsitter by Shelly Brown for reviewing future house publishing. Though I am not a good reader, took a chance and realized that it has a good plot. Essentially, I proofread the book to make sure it made sense and would be challenging enough for middle schoolers but not too difficult that they wouldn’t enjoy reading it. If you’re wondering, what is proofreading, it’s basically just making sure words are spelled correctly, grammar is used appropriately and that the whole piece generally makes sense, which it does. I enjoyed reading it and it really consumed my time well. I can see a lot of middle schoolers really enjoying this book and being able to sink their teeth into its content.
The characters Justin and Tiffany teach us about friendship, communication and how to work together whilst getting rid of ghosts for example. Tiffany was living a normal life when ghost children start following her, not something middle schoolers would read every day. The detail without making the book too big was really cool. It won’t scare the children but it will excite them, especially when Justin and Tiffany get closer to finding answers.
Also, I liked that, every chapter kept switching perspectives between Tiffany and Justin so that we are in suspense of what the other person is thinking. My son and I loved this book and would like to read it again. I would highly recommend this book.
