Everyone thinks Sally's just another runaway, but Mattie knows the truth-she's dead. Murdered. Mattie feels like she has to help Sally, but she can't do it alone. Against her better judgment, she teams up with a young policeman, Officer Dan, and together they set out to discover the real truth behind Sally's disappearance.

Publisher's Summary

Skinny jeans: check

Dead kid in the mirror: check

For sixteen year old Mattie Hathaway, this is her normal everyday routine. She's been able to see ghosts since her mother tried to murder her when she was five years old. No way does she want anyone to know she can talk to spooks. Being a foster kid is hard enough without being labeled a freak too.

Normally, she just ignores the ghosts and they go away. That is until she see's the ghost of her foster sister... Sally.

Everyone thinks Sally's just another runaway, but Mattie knows the truth-she's dead. Murdered. Mattie feels like she has to help Sally, but she can't do it alone. Against her better judgment, she teams up with a young policeman, Officer Dan, and together they set out to discover the real truth behind Sally's disappearance.

Only to find out she's dealing with a much bigger problem, a serial killer, and she may be the next victim…

Will Mattie be able to find out the truth before the killer finds her?

    "Defective recording! Frequent repeats."
    What disappointed you about The Ghost Files (The Ghost Files - Book 1)?

    Very difficult and frustrating to listen to because so many sections repeat. This audio book needs to be recalled, fixed.and reissued. Sorry I wasted a credit. Very disappointed because without the technical issues it would be a good story.

    Story
    "Very Slow Going"
    Would you try another book from Apryl Baker and/or Roxana Bell?

    Excellent narration. However, the story is dragged down with too much dialogue and confusing paranormal activity.


    Would you recommend The Ghost Files (The Ghost Files - Book 1) to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. Baker needs to pick up the pace by cutting back on dialogue and unnecessary scenes that don't move the story forward.


    Have you listened to any of Roxana Bell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but she is an excellent YA narrator.

    "Good story, bad editing"

    There were multiple repeated sections in this audio book. The performance was good and the story entertaining, just needs mother edit.

    "Good book!"

    Love the storyline but the editing is atrocious. Main characters are very compelling and engaging. Really enjoyed and had to get the next book!

    "Some problems with repetition in the recording"
    Where does The Ghost Files (The Ghost Files - Book 1) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an ok book. I liked the premise and parts were suitably creepy, although the live monsters were way scarier than the ghosts. My biggest complaint is continuity, several times parts of the audio file repeated so it destroyed the momentum when that occurred.

    Story
    "Written by a 16 year old for 16 year olds"

    This book is written for young girls and should be labeled as such. I should have listened to the sample then I would have known the narrator was also a 16 year old girl. It is difficult listening to a young girl imitate a full grown man. I think maybe the editor may have also been a 16 year old because there a many repeats in the performance. If you are over 16, this book is not for you.
