❝My Thoughts❞

Everyone, young or old, loves ghost stories, spooky legends, and things that go bump in the night. The Girls' Guide To Ghost Hunting is chalk full of creepy fun, like haunted objects, the history of ghosts and spirits, cool investigation tips for hunting and tracking ghosts and their activity, lots of fun activities to liven things up, and so much more! It's a ghostly entertaining book that covers all things supernatural in such a lively and entertaining way that will definitely keep readers engaged and captivated as they flip through the pages. There are even some spook-tac-ular snackish recipies that are sure to be delicious. What fan of paranormal activities wouldn't enjoy this book?

Urban legends have always been my favorite thing, when it comes to the scary fun stuff. You know, the stories that are usually told while sitting around campfire's meant to scare the boogiedy out of you. Stacey Graham did a wonderful job of intertwining them throughout the book at the ends of every chapter, to give it that overall erie feel that would cause thrills and chills. The history was rich and interesting without being too clinical and stuffy and there was some super fantastic insider information too.

There's just so many things that make this book a lot of fun for younger girls, while still being cute and enjoyable enough for to slightly appeal to older ones as well. I would definitely recommend this book to any middle grader who enjoys the paranormal and striking out on their own to hunt a ghost or get in touch with the other side.
