As i read this book I was very much into it, it was a bit spooky in places, even a bit romantic in places. I really enjoyed it UNTIL i got to the end and the author admits that its a made up story based on an experience she had...

I bought it with this on the cover "The true story of a girl and a Ghost", silly me took that to mean it was a true story. Its not, it is simply a nice story of a haunted house and a young girl who falls in love with the ghost.
The story is nothing like that which the author really experienced.

It is a good book if you read it as a fictional ghost/romance story and not as a true ghost story.

"This House" was one of the best books I have read in a long time. After a few pages I found myself drawn into the story and had a difficult time putting this book down. The style of writing really makes it seem like the main character is telling you her story directly to you and Amelia Cotter makes it very easy to visualize everything as if you were right there in the story. She is a great new author and I hope she writes more soon, as I will be first in line to get the next book!

I really enjoyed this book. I was completely drawn into the story after only the first few pages. The story was very entertaining and it held my attention throughout the entire book. It was a real page turner from begining to end! I would encourage anyone who loves a good ghost story to read this one! A+++

I really liked this story.It was sweet,real and kinda sad.If you think about real sprits there people from another time that are stuck in our time missing there time and are loney for all things in there own time.Ghosts are people and need to helped if you can.They should not be peoples entertantment.and I think that is what this young girl comes to learn. good story, good writing read it.

In This House: The True Story of a Girl and a Ghost, Amelia Cotter shares the story of a young girl who encounters a ghost at an abandoned house near her father's place of employment. I read this book with great anticipation. I turned each page quickly to see what happens to Nora while she searches for Walter. Think of this novella as an episode of The Twilight Zone- great suspense without being overly dramatic or scary. The intended audience of teens will find this story captivating, and as a teacher I plan to recommend this book to my students who are interested in the supernatural.

I'm looking forward to see what Ms. Cotter will write next.

This book is well written and easy to get lost in!I can not think of a single page that I was not looking forward to the next page! The authors notes help you see it as she sees it and is a big plus! The poems in the book are a nice addition and I loved them too. This book is also easy to take with you to read in your spare time! I look forward to reading more of her work as it comes available!

Amelia Cotter's book "This House" drew me into a world that I have never been in before. Right after I started reading the first chapters, I felt like I was right behind Nora's back, discovering THIS HOUSE, which was occupied by Walter the ghost. I felt personally attached to this story, not only because my grandfather's name is Walter, but also because it reminded me of my childhood. Discovering lonely places in my grandmother's dusty barn and attic were some of my most favorite activities. This book is very well written and thrilling--it will submerge you in a world shrouded in legends.

This book is a guaranteed to give you goosebumps!

I just bought and finished this book last night. It reminded me of a good campfire ghost story. The narrative voice was very believable and I was sucked in right away. I love a good ghost story as well as a good romance and this story had both elements. I enjoyed the fact that this was not a large book with unecessary fillers. It was a straight forward page turner. It took me all of two or three hours to read in one sitting. Because of this, I would suggest it to someone who is going on vacation and is looking for something light to read on the plane. I would also recommend this book to someone who simply wants to enjoy one of those late October evenings with a cup of hot chocolate and an atmospheric book. Enjoy!
