During a stormy night at Camp Dakota, the young campers learn about sound and thunderstorms. When Braelin and Megan wander away from everyone else at the lake shore and take shelter from more rain, they hear ghostly sounds, but are they hearing ghosts or something else? While readers might pick up this entry in the Summer Camp Science Mysteries series for the fun story and Torres’ appealing artwork, they’ll also learn quite a bit about sound and might be inspired to try some of the easy experiments at the back of the book. Grades 2-4. --Kat Kan
