Critic Reviews

"The recent death of Gilda's father and Juliet's psychological problems give the story a heft that elevates it above the typical middle-grade mystery or ghost story. Stylistically, the writing is occasionally over the top, but give this book high marks for substance." (Booklist)

Great tween story

My daughter loves this book. I think she has listened to it a hundred times over. She likes the character Gilda because she is "a little weird." The book is funny as when Gilda dresses up and tries to pass herself off as a grown-up. The book is thrilling as when they are looking for a ghost. It's everything a tween girl will love. Mine has since gone on to read the other Gilda Joyce books (can't wait for the audio) and is looking forward to the author writing another.

Too dark and disturbing for my tween

After reading the other reviews, I decided to get this audio book for my 10 year old. I couldn't sleep, so I listened to it before she got to it and it was a good thing! This book focuses on a person that commits suicide and then becomes a ghost that haunts her neice. Definitely a subject that I am not ready to go in depth on with my daughter. It was an interesting book, just be aware before you give it to your kid.

Wonderfully entertaining!

This listen kept me interested through the entire book. It made you smile and this book never slowed down. It is really a kids (pre-teen to teen) book but as an adult it was just a really fun listen.
