Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. Something a little out of the ordinary but I loved it. Full of twists and turns, you'll never know what to expect.  Amanda Williams (Reviewer) | NetGalley 

From the Author

Ghost Boy is a middle grade/young adult paranormal love story that, like the Harry Potter books, will interest readers of all ages. Seventh-grader Ben Conover sees people no one else can see. He can distinguishthem from the "regular people" who walk the mall. He has power over darkspirits who aim to harm. He has a deeply loving connection with a spirit girlhis same age who visits him, but he has no idea where his feelings come from.Ben's bold adventures, compassionate nature, and eerie encounters with anunseen world are woven together throughout the book. Ghost Boy is more than a boy-book. Girls will identify with themysterious heroine whose life in "heaven" leaves her yearning for earth,especially Ben. This multiracial novel does not have the feel of fantasyfiction. By bringing to light the sometimes wondrous, sometimes haunted worldof a clairvoyant child--the special kind of kid that so many parents are living with these days--it has a revelatory quality. It seems real--because itis.
