Review


This is the kind of book I loved to read when I was a kid--lots of humor, lots of suspense, fun characters... just the right blend for kids that want a fun, exciting read. --Rick Walton, author of over 80 books for children

From the Author

I wrote this book thinking that kids in 5th, 6th, and 7th grades would be its primary readers. I've been surprised to see that both older and younger readers like it. Given that, I'm glad I kept it a "clean" read. It's suitable for all audiences.

I thought this was a great book. It is not just for girls, I think boys would like the concept too - even though the book was written from a girl's perspective. It has a unique idea that is fun for the reader to visualize. I got so into it that I actually dreamt that I was in the situation at the end of the book. The dialogue is believeable and also humorous at times. I would definitely recommend this book.

This book was funny, clever, and well written. I got the Kindle version, and my son (he's 9) loved reading it on my Kindle. I like having a few middle grade books on my Kindle for those times when we're stuck somewhere and my kids are bored.

Back to the book. The plot was new and imaginative, which is a nice thing in middle grade fiction. I definitely recommend it.

First, I would like to thank Shaunda Kennedy Wenger for the opportunity to read and review her book.

Myri is terrified of public speaking. Science fair presentations, theater productions, and speaking in front of the class gives her the heebie jeebies. When Myri is forced to join the drama club for required extra curricular course credit, her worst nightmare has become a reality. To make things even worse, she is required to audition for the school play. Enter Myri's friend Wren, who also happens to be ghost. To avoid the thing she fears most, Wren steps in and poses as Myri. This seems like an ideal solution to all of Myri's stage freight problems, until things start to go wrong.

Myri goes through a lot of things that many young girls can relate to, including self esteem issues, liking boys that other girls like, and embarrassing moments. How she handles all these issues may not be exactly how she should but it's fun to watch her work through things. There's a lot more to Myri than she realizes and her friends, Roz, Wren, and Duey, help her to see there is no need for her hide.

The Ghost in Me is a fun story with a little bit of moral and I highly recommend this story to middle school age readers. It may not be a middle grade novel that adults will want to read but it's certainly one that they would want their children to read. Wenger does a great job weaving the story as well balancing humor with more serious moments. The chapters are short and the pace move quickly. Throughout the book, the story holds your interest and frequently makes you smile. Overall, The Ghost in Me is a very cute read.

Shaunda Kennedy Wenger's `The Ghost in Me' has touched on several young teen's interests. The subject matter has wide appeal to both teens and the adults that hope to relate to them. Myri is presented with common teenage situations with a new and interesting twist, a friendly ghost.. The mix of awkward middle school moments and ghostly interventions leaves the reader wondering "What if I had a friendly ghost of my own". This realistic fantasy has great potential for a screen play. I am anxiously anticipating the release of `Reality Bites' this summer.

This was a lot of fun and has many of the ingredients that will entice kids in that middle-grade age group. I am giving it to my 9 year old niece because I think she will enjoy the playfulness of the ghost and the courage of the young heroine.

I loved this book! The main character goes through so many typical experiences that it's easy to relate to her. The story moves along well and includes several plot complications that make it difficult to put down. It's lighthearted, but deals with some real issues that readers can relate to. Really enjoyable!
