The Haunting is just the right amount of creepy mystery for middle readers. Author Lindsey Duga’s prose is spot on for this genre. Emily is likeable and Kat’s unsettling behavior is perfectly balanced. I did figure out the mystery before the “big reveal” but that didn’t lessen my anticipation for the climax.
The Haunting is a fast-paced read that I finished in a day. It’s sure to be a hit with middle graders.
*Review based on advanced copy provided by publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
The Haunting is a wonderful ghost story that will keep readers guessing until the very end, while being ideally suited for the middle-grade reading audience. Strong visualization and just enough scary elements to keep a younger reader enthralled through the entire book.
With each twist the story rises to a crescendo that is as surprising as it is satisfying. 5/5, would read more in this vein.
