Grave Error (Weirdville Book 6) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The common thread in this series is the town of Weirdville, where strange, spooky and scary things happen with regularity. Each book stands alone, and are perfect reads that give a feel of sitting around a campfire telling a spooky story.
In Grave Error, Tess is walking her dog in the woods when she meets a girl in old fashioned clothes and no memory of who she is. Even stranger, this new girl is transparent! This being Weirdville, Tess instantly wonders if the girl isn’t a ghost, and since she can’t continue to refer to her as “the girl” she calls her Emily. Far from being too scared to help, Tess wonders if a trip to the graveyard might help Emily to discover who she is.
Wandering in the graveyard, Emily points at a stone and says “there is evil there”, and even the dog, not at all afraid of Emily, gives that grave a wide berth. With some scary moments that nearly change Tess’s mind about helping Emily, they are able to defeat the bad spirit and find the solution to the mystery that is Emily.
Verstraete gives her characters life and breath, these are kids who turn to one another and their parents for help in unraveling the mysteries: even if the parents are skeptical at first. These are not kids with superior skills or curiosity, they are aware of their own limitations but still want to find the answers. The twists and spooky moments are well placed and pepper the story with increased tension to the climax, never quite tipping over into nightmare territory. Wonderful stories to share with your children or grandchildren, and particularly well-suited for reading aloud.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
Suffering from boredom and a hot summer Tess discovers a ghost in the woods between her house and the grave yard. Tess’s dog likes the ghost. The ghost doesn’t know who she is. So even though Tess is scared she takes the ghost to the grave yard to see who she might be. The ghost tells Tess to stay away from one of the gravestones because it feels evil. Not knowing the ghost’s name they choose to call her Emily. Tess tells Emily she will help her find out who she is and what happened to her. Tess helps find out when the ghost lived, what her name is and how she died. They search the grave yard for her tombstone. The grave yard is scary and bad things happen. In the end Tess helps the ghost get rid of the evil ghoul and find her way home. The story was a little spooky and it was awesome. I really loved it because it was creepy.
This book was a short but fun read and I enjoyed sharing it with my granddaughter. We were given this book for an honest review.
