As I think this book is mostly aimed at teenagers and young adults, I am reviewing it at such and giving
it 4 stars. However, as a 66 year old Harry Potter fan, I also enjoyed it! I do believe in ghosts so I could
empathize with the main character, Mattie.

She is in foster care and does her best to ignore the ghosts who try to talk to her. That is till another
foster girl, Sally, is murdered. Mattie's quest to find Sally's body and perhaps save the life of another
girl forces her to communicate with the ghosts - sometimes leading to physical and mental violence for
herself.

Though I found the dialogue a bit limited - every guy she met was "cute" and she "sooo was not going to
talk to this cop ..." etc. I suspect that is how teenagers do converse! And she did repeat her feelings
about the cop, Dan and not wanting to trust anyone a tad too often. However, once going, the story rattled
along, especially towards the end. There was no bad language or sex scenes and only a few typos.

I read this book in one evening and thought I knew the killer early on - I was wrong, which made a nice
change! I would recommend this book to anyone interested in ghosts, whatever your age.

The Ghost Files #1 is a #YA #Horror set in North Carolina. Sixteen year old Mattie Hathaway is a foster kid. The book opens with her getting ready to go to a party when a ghost appears. This isn't unusual for Mattie, she's been seeing ghosts and ignoring them since she was five years old, she's just never told anyone.

The ghost of Emma is around eight years old, she has a hole in her head.

Mattie leaves her foster sister Sally at home while she heads off to the party, but later the ghost of Sally appears at the party. Mattie knows she's dead. Rushing home she begs Mrs Olsen to ring the police, but she's reluctant because Sally told her she was going to a party too. She insists on waiting a few hours. Desperate to help find Sally's killer, Mattie bravely calls out to the ghosts. Instead of Emma a small boy appears, he too has a shot wound. Then a gruesome ghost physically attacks Mattie and she ends up in hospital.

With no other option but to tell someone about the ghosts, Mattie confides in officer Dan Richards. Dan is very sceptical, but agrees to help. Another ghost appears, Mary, she's beaten, but Mattie believes she is still alive, promising to find and help Mary before it's too late. Mattie is convinced there is a serial killer attacking kids and time is running out.

I liked Mattie, she is sharp witted, independent and strong willed. She's been in foster care long enough that she knows the system and how to survive. Horror isn't for everyone, and I need to sleep at night, but because this is #YA I found the horror compelling to read rather than frightening. Really enjoyed the twists and turns in this and have downloaded the second book in the series.

Five stars are so not enough for this story, to be honest I couldn't give it an accurate star rating because I'm not good with huge, massive numbers just know that this story really is a spectacular read and on I know I will come back to time and time again. The twists and turns had me intrigued from the start and the ending... Well I'm not going to say anymore, if you want to know why I loved it so much then I recommend you read it for yourself.

I pretty much read this over the weekend while travelling on a train to kill time. I quite enjoy ghost stories and overall this is quite a good one. It started off well but did lose its way a bit for me and I struggled slightly with getting into the story but then it picked up again and ends strongly. I liked Mattie though still not sure if I like the direction of the relationship she has with Dan, even though I liked him also. To me they come across more like a brotherly/sisterly type and personally think it would work better that way. Overall not a bad read at all.

Really enjoyed this book by Apryl Baker especially as I'd like never normally go for this genre. Good storyline and characters. Looking forward to the next book in the series

I rather liked this derivative tale. It, I think, is aimed at the young adult market. I think Apryl has hit the nail on the head and see it as being successful even if it is not for me. Then I am also not of the target market being old grizzled and grey. This, however is worth a read. Remember it is an old fellow reviwing a young girls book.l

I found it very difficult to put this book down. It is so different to other thriller / mysteries that I have read and I recommend it to others interested in ghost stories.

This book was recommended on my kindle store so i thought i would give it a go. I absolutely loved this book and immediately bought all of the sequels as well as looking up other books by the same author. I like her style of writing and i found this book impossible to put down. I would definitely recommend this series of books.
