Chapter by Chapter's review of The Girls Ghost Hunting Guide 2 Nov. 2012
By MaryAnn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ladies, think back to when you were a kid, remember all those horror movies you would watch with your parent/guardian and the creepy shivers you would get? Do you remember how in your waking world you could tell yourself it wasn't real but once it was time to go to bed every single bump in the night suddenly became the shuffling of a zombie? Every whoosh of air was a ghost moving through the air and every dream involved either being chased or a more dangerous version of Thriller, do you remember that?

Well considering that I'm the big chicken that I am, I still remember all of those things happening after every single scary movie that I see and to be quite honest when it comes to the realms of the supernatural--I like to have a bit of background knowledge. As a kid, I would watch shows about characters who uncover supernatural mysteries and have to admit that I secretly always wanted to be a paranormal investigator. Besides who knows, what with all the YA novels I've been reading lately, there might be a chance of getting a supernatural boyfriend... and I'm wandering away from the point of this review!

The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide is something I wish I had years ago to sate my questions about the creepiest of all the supernatural entities: Ghosts! Duh, obviously! With such an adoringly cute ghost mascot and a totally creepy opening sentence I had a feeling that this middle grade read would be something that would have me interested and entertained. Do I take some of the things I learned seriously? Oh yeah. Am I going to become a paranormal investigator sometime soon because of this guide? Of course not! But I sure want to!

The guide revolves around (you guessed it) ghosts. How to find them, what they're like, how to contact them and how to become a ghost hunter yourself. How fun! Right guys? It's not just a how-to guide, there are also pages and mini chapters that are devoted to creepy urban legends, quizzes to test your knowledge and interviews from real world ghost hunters who give us insight into the career path of a professional Ghostbuster.

As I said before, I'm a big chicken and so when I read certain urban legends I'll admit that sleeping became just a bit too hard. But just a little bit. In the past (for writing purposes) I would Google certain things that contact ghosts, one of them including a Ouija board that opens a portal of sorts into the otherworld and if one isn't cautious you end up summoning the bad mojo. Like real bad. And in the guide, there is one way to contact ghosts that basically means ripping open a portal, I gotta admit that when I read that my eyes went wide and I hoped that if somebody does choose to do it they are careful as all heck because the bad mojo is...well... bad.

I'm a superstitious person, okay?

I would recommend The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide to young readers who have a lust for the supernatural and want to increase their knowledge. This is a story that should definitely be read before Halloween *ominous laughter*.

Moonlight Gleam's Bookshelf: (Review) The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide by Stacey Graham 19 Jun. 2012
By Lucy (Moonlight Gleam) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide begins with a brief history on ghosts and when ghost sightings first began. Then the book immediately shifts to describing signals for people to keep a lookout for when searching for or accidentally coming into contact with ghosts, like how our pets can sense that ghosts are near and what kind of reactions they would have. This is followed by various ghost stories and legends.

The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide is such a cute read and I personally enjoyed reading everything from cover to cover. The page designs and the mini activities will definitely appeal to young teens (although I am sure older teens will like them too!).

I really enjoyed completing the little activities that The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide has its readers complete throughout the book. One of the chapters gives readers tips on how to create their own ghost stories. The interviews included within the book also added a personal element, as readers could read and learn of other people's experiences as well as their encounters with ghosts.

Filled with clues, checklists, interviews, and tips The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide is an enjoyable read that all young teens will love! I recommend The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide to those who enjoy reading Middle-Grade novels (with a spooky twist!).

Must Read! Highly Recommended!

Live To Read 16 Jun. 2012
By Chels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This ghostly handbook is perfect for young teens planning a spooky sleepover. This cute cartooned guide includes interviews with psychic ghost hunters, explains mid -1800s spirit photographs, recounts the story of "Resurrection Mary" and "Bloody Mary" (stories I've heard since childhood), includes recipes and jokes, suggests spooky movies, and much more. Some of the explanations and stories seem aimed at an older crowd too. My husband finds cemeteries interesting; he liked the list of tombstone symbols and what they signify.
Where should you research ghosts? What decorations/effects will help you to tell a great ghost story? How would you create a spooky, suspenseful story with attention-grabbing, quirky characters? Check out the book for hints.
This little guidebook will make a fun gift for middle school age kids, especially at Halloween!

Such a cute little book! 5 Jun. 2012
By Ashelynn Hetland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
IN A SENTENCE:

What an adorable middle grade book! The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide by Stacey Graham is your one-step guide to, well, learn how to ghost hunt! I loved it.

REVIEW:

I loved The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide by Stacey Graham. It was such a quick spooky read, and I've learned a lot about ghost hunting! Like did you know that hanging wind chimes in the most haunted room might alert you when a ghost enters? Totally awesome. There were so many things in this little book that I want to try out--especially the recipes!

One of the best things I really liked were the interviews. The first interview is about a woman who is clairsentient, clairaudient, and clairvoyant, which is physically feel, physically hear, and physically see ghosts, respectively. How sweet is that?

I also really liked all the fun little activities throughout this book, like the quizzes and finishing the ghost stories. Also, one of my favorite things to do is telling/listening to ghost stories, and this book includes actual ghost stories, like the guys hitching rides and Bloody Mary. This is one book that makes me want to run out and convince my friends to ghost hunt with me. Brb, making a ghost hunting kit.

And like Stacey Graham, I'm going to steal one of the jokes at the end of the book to end my review:

What kind of makeup do ghosts wear?
Mas-scare-a.

Ha! :) I highly recommend this one to all ghost lovers--especially those who have middle grade-aged children in their life to share this book! (I think The Girls' Guide To Hunting Ghosts will appeal to everybody, not just girls. Because boys like hunting ghosts too, right?)

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Great for young ghost hunters 1 Aug. 2012
By Liviania - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a super cute book for young girls who love ghosts. (Although clearly aimed at girls, there are some young boys who would probably enjoy it too if they're willing to look past the pink.) Stacey Graham clearly knows her ghost hunting!

Now, I love ghost stories but I'm not a big believer in ghosts. Therefore, I liked features like the urban legends and recipes best. I loved the chapter on how to write and tell your own ghost stories. There are also interesting facts about things like gravestone iconography and the history of mediums. So yes, even skeptical ghost lovers can enjoy THE GIRLS' GHOST HUNTING GUIDE.

For those who really do want to hunt ghosts, Graham provides a great deal of practical information. I liked that she stressed safety - always use the buddy system and never, ever trespass. I also liked her photography tips. You don't want to think you photographed a spirit only to find out that it was your hair blowing across the lens or the reflection of your rhinestone bracelet. There are also interviews with professional ghost hunters to show that girls can make a career out of this hobby.

Sourcebooks did a wonderful job of packaging this guide. The graphics are adorable and the layouts are clean and colorful. THE GIRLS' GHOST HUNTING GUIDE is printed on nice, heavy stock so that it won't get bent in your bag when you go looking for ghosts.

If you're an aspiring ghost hunter or happen to know one, I advise picking up a copy of THE GIRLS' GHOST HUNTING GUIDE. It's a fun introduction to the field with a bibliography that will point the way to girls interested in diving deeper with their paranormal studies.
