Listen to the Ghost

Listen to the Ghost

My name’s Jade Dalton. When my brother, David, and I agreed to housesit for our grandparents while they toured Europe, I had no idea how spooky the summer would be. Yep. Their house is haunted. I never believed in ghosts until I met Phoebe. She … Well, you can read the book to see all the trouble Phoebe gets herself and me into. You won’t believe it. To my surprise and delight, LISTEN TO THE GHOST also won a sweet award. Here it is. Cool, huh?

What people are saying:

“This was a roller coaster of a story and I enjoyed every minute.  I liked the relationship between Jade and her big brother.  During the course of the story they end the relationship they had as children and start a mature adult sibling relationship.  There isn’t any blood or guts but the haunting can be quite scary when we don’t know about Phoebe.  Kurt is very scary, as well, realistically so.  There is also a good romantic twist which is fun.  So this Halloween or at anytime, do yourself a favor and read LISTEN TO THE GHOST!” Reviewed by:  Marta Morrison for TeensReadToo

“I was in the mood for a good ghost story, and I found one. Listen to the Ghost is a ghost story with some interesting “human” twists. There’s a stalking ex-boyfriend that you want to smack for being obnoxious. There’s an interesting and handsome musician who joins the house sitting group during the ghostly excitement. Then there’s  a brother and sister who learn how to deal with each other in different ways than they did as children. This is a nice theme and one that added to the texture of the book.” C. Lee McKenzie, author of The Princess of Las Pulgas and other stories for teens.
