Book Description

Alexandra ‘Alibi’ Vernon is the eleven-year-old daughter of a psychic medium whose behavior is repeatedly influenced by kids from the Other Side. From building sub sandwiches in her sleep to sneaking into a stranger's attic, Alibi has her innocence challenged on a regular basis. Since her mother is fairly new at medium work, she only schedules two readings a week. However, this particular week, she accidentally schedules five readings, five days in a row. During this time, each child from the Other Side has a mysterious clue for Alibi to unravel, and she begins to notice each clue is connected in some way with the other readings. With a bit of ghostly charade playing, lots of trouble dodging, and the help of her deceased relatives: Grandpa Edgar and Cousin Kyle, along with her living but scaredy-cat best friend, Daisy, Alibi is able to solve the mystery and help all five grieving parents simultaneously.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mysteriouse and Inviting January 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Background: Alexandra 'Alibi' Vernon has a strange talent, and so does her mother. Her mother is a Medium who helps people deal with the deaths of their loved ones. Alibi has a similar gift, the ghosts that her mom is a Medium to, normally send her messages in mysterious ways. Some have her make sandwiches while sleepwalking, others make noises, and even her grandfather and cousin tend to appear to her. This week, her mom has a lot more readings than normal, and Alibi is sent on a clue hunt for the ghosts, which oddly all seem to be linked.

Review: This was an adorable Middle-Grade read, the font of my paperback copy was large and inviting to younger readers and the story was fast paced, surprising, and mysterious. Alibi is a very strong character, scared by very little, and just trying to get through this week with her mother. Alibi keeps note sheets about each of the ghosts that she encounters in their strange ways, and the author has included them for the reader,like clues for use to pick up and put together to solve the mystery. And it is a mystery, a kind of scavenger hunt. As a reader, I think these types of books are both fun to read but also a puzzle to solve, and I think younger readers will agree.

I recommended this for Middle Grade readers, not too scary so the ghost aspect isn't overly haunting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spooktacular Ghost Story For All Ages October 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
"Alibi's Ghost" is a great YA ghost story that every age can enjoy. Alexander `Alibi' is a young preteen girl living with her parents in Texas. Her father's hobby is buying houses, remodeling them, and then flipping them for a nice profit. Her mom is a newly minted medium and does readings from home. Their current home is a 3 story older house that cost more in repairs than her father thought so that is where they currently live, but there is one catch, this house seems to be a magnet for ghosts. Her mom would like to turn it into a bed and breakfast some day so the name "Dead and Breakfast Inn", as her friend Daisy calls their home, is aptly named.

Whenever Alibi's mom does a reading for a client she herself will also get contacted by the client's loved one, but what they try to tell her doesn't always make sense so she has learned to chart every clue in hopes that eventually everything will make sense and she can help the lost souls that contact her. She also is in contact with her grandpa Edgar and cousin Kyle who passed a few years before in a car accident. They have told her that they are there to be her `guardian angels'.

Her mom usually schedules a maximum of 2 readings a week but something went wrong and her mom actually has 5 readings so Alibi gets 5 different ghosts leaving her clues to decipher. This week has been very busy for Alibi; she has found herself making a lot of odd sandwiches in the middle of the night, accidently breaking an alarm clock in the guest bedroom, things of that nature, and of course she gets blamed for any mischief the ghosts get up to, especially her cousin Kyle, the prankster. So she really hopes that she can put all of the clues together before she gets into some serious trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alibi's Ghosts September 22, 2012
REVIEW BY: Angel, age 9 years, 10 months


This book is about how a 11 year old girl named Alexandra "Alibi" Veron talks to children from the other side. Alibi is always getting clues from her dead grandpa Edgar and cousin Kyle. When Alibi gets clues she writes them down and then tries to figure out why children from the other side are here. Alibi is up in the middle of the night doing things for the children from the other side, such as making sub sandwiches. She is the daughter of a psychic medium who is fairly new at medium work. Grandpa Edgar gives Alibi a clue by having Alibi listen to a tape while her friend, Daisy, is present. The clue is from the reading her mother did for Laura Danvers, the lady who owns the bookstore that Alibi and her mother go to. Alibi and Daisy hatch out a plan that requires bravery.

I enjoyed this book very much. I could picture what Alibi, Daisy, the scenes, and everyone else looked like in my head. This book would be a great read for anyone that likes ghost stories and mysteries in grades 3-6. My favorite part was when Alibi was painting and she became bored so she painted a different way than her mother wanted her to. While Alibi is painting, she gets paint in her hair so she has to go to the bathroom and take a shower. When Alibi gets out of the shower, she finds her mother is in the room where Alibi was painting. Her mother was just standing looking at the wall, so Alibi goes to see what her mother is looking at. Her mother was looking at a painted wall portrayed to look like an ocean, but the wall was not supposed to be painted as an ocean. This was my favorite part because I could imagine the ocean wall. I think that anyone who reads this book will like it. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Pre-Teen intro to the Paranormal. August 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Alibi Vernon is a sweet young girl who seemingly has a knack for getting into trouble. Now, if only her parents would realize that she is not operating under her own power when she does the things that cause them to question her.

When you first meet the main character in this novel, she seems like any other 12 year old girl, with a twist, she gets messages from ghosts. You see, her mother is a medium, or someone who can commune with the dead. Alibi gets messages from the same ghosts that her mother is reading for, only they do not always make sense.

As you read through the novel, you find that each one of the ghosts has a different message for her and in her mind, it is a jumbled mess, but she has this feeling that somehow it will all make sense if she can just put the pieces together. Each message leaves her acting strangely, experiencing different things and going through events that would normally not occur for her.

Then, you meet her best friend who is just a little creeped out by the whole ghost thing and, though she tries to put on a brave face, the whole thing scares her to death!

Alibi's Ghosts will take you on an unforgettable journey and remind you what it was like in those awkward teen years. It brought me straight back to childhood and age 12 and having things you want to tell people, but being afraid of what they will think. To me, this story screams of the coming-of-age, finding your place kind of thing that all girls go through in growing up.

As far removed as I am from the target audience (I have a child in the correct age group, though), I found that this was one I could not put down.
