There’s an old saying that “dead men tell no tales” — but that saying is definitely not true. Just ask twelve-year-old Kendall Williams, who can’t get dead people to stop talking to her, no matter how politely she asks. It’s pretty frustrating being able to hear and see people that no one else can. For one thing, her friends and family think she’s going crazy. And for another, being spotted by your crush while talking to (seemingly) no one is positively mortifying. But Kendall is going to have to learn how to deal, because the only way to quiet the dead is to help them.’
The covers are always so cute, and honestly they are quick but good reads.
This book was no exception. It was cute, it was quick, and it had a great story line.
First of all I love that the ghost is an ex gymnast. I was a gymnast myself, and really anything with gymnastics still has a really soft spot in my heart. I loved the gymnastics talk and the fact that Kendall got to go to gymnastics meets.
The story line was also really good because there was a mystery to it. Not only does Kendall see and talk to ghosts but she is also required to figure out the mystery of what the ghost is telling her. Usually so the ghost can pass on.
This reminds me of a younger version of The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot.
Also there’s just something nice about reading this story. It reminds you of your childhood and what it was like to be that young. Very cute.
