The Ghost on the Stairs (Haunted) Paperback – August 4, 2009
From School Library Journal
Grade 4–6—A great start to a suspenseful new series. Thirteen-year-old Jon and 11-year-old Tania's mother works for a ghost-hunting television show and is married to the producer. When the siblings travel to Colorado with the show, Tania is shocked to discover that she can see the ghost of a sad young bride floating down the hotel stairs. Tania convinces her brother to assist her in solving the mystery of the dead woman's origins, and through many satisfying turns, her sad tale is revealed. Tania realizes that she has no choice but to allow the woman to possess her so she can be reunited with her heartbroken groom, whose ghost, the siblings discover, is stuck in the local cemetery. These brave kids take on this challenge without adult assistance, and the grown-ups are great supporting characters who let the kids do their own thing. Haunted is a fun read with some thrills and chills and has the added bonus of some genuine, compassionate personalities. Pair it with Mary Downing Hahn's Wait Till Helen Comes (Clarion, 1986), Cynthia DeFelice's The Ghost and Mrs. Hobbs (Farrar, 2001), or Peni R. Griffin's The Ghost Sitter (Dutton, 2001).—Julie Shatterly, South County Regional Library, Charlotte, NC END

There were numerous times where I got chills. Sometime chills came with what is totally expected, the "spooky factor", and other times the chills came with building excitement and/or suspense. Especially toward the end!
Great Book very entertaining, and kept my interest throughout! Can't wait to read the next Haunted book "The Riverboat Phantom."
