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.

I wasn't quite sure what to make of this novel in the first few pages as the characters seemed a bit cliched and forced 'all-American' kids. However once the story got going and the pace kicked in, I was impressed. The main character of Mattie can be a bit annoying at times but that['s also quite realistic as a 16 year old. The premise is not new but once the storyline gets going it really rockets along and is hard to put down. Clever of the author to put a few different potential romantic interests in there as none are clear cut or obvious. Now I'm looking forward to see where the story goes in the next book!

I wondered several times during this book if I was reading a book written for teenage girls but kept going as it was a good read. Boy am I glad I did. This is as good a book as I've read this year. It is a delightfully told tale which I reluctantly enjoyed every turn of the page. The climax had me emotionally involved and each of the final twists caught me and has left me wanting more.
Brilliantly told tale. Do yourself a favour and buy this then make a pot of coffee, close and lock the doors and don't stop till you've finished. By then you'll realise locking the doors was pointless!

I picked this up as a 'loan' on the Amazon Prime Kindle lending library, and was really impressed. I think this book is probably aimed at young adults, but don't let that put you off reading it. Ghost Files is pacy, has an excellent storyline that puts many more experienced writers in this genre to shame, and is strong from start to finish. Stephen King said that the key to writing good horror/supernatural books is to make the reader care for the characters, and I think this is why 'Ghost Files' succeeds. I really like Mattie, I cared what happened to her from the first chapter, and all her characters have great likeability. OK, the writer is clearly new and the inexperience shows occasionally, but not to the detraction of the story and I never once wanted to stop reading. I really hope Apryl Baker writes another in the series soon.

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.
