Grace’s Ghosts by Stephenie Wilson Peterson – Review by Anantha Rusum

Grace's GhostsGrace’s Ghosts by Stephenie Wilson Peterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a story about a twelve-year-old girl Grace, whose only friends are the spooky sweet ghosts including her cat, Midnight.
She starts enjoying the company of the ghosts till one day she finds out the reason why there are so many ghosts around her. There is a spell which was cast on these people three hundred years ago, which turned them into ghosts. Grace realizes that she has magical abilities and she is the one who is destined to break this spell. But breaking it comes with its own consequences, she will lose everyone who is near and dear to her, including Midnight.
Will Grace succeed in her effort forms the plot of the story. It is a sweet and a spooky story, especially meant for teens and middle grade students. When I read this book, I was reminded of this movie Casper, which is about a sweet little ghost which befriends a girl in the castle. This book is similar to the movie. It brings forth the emotions of Grace, her courage, determination and her turmoil all described really well. There are all types of ghosts, some friendly, some grumpy, and each character is unique. It is a fast paced, fun read with a spooky element in it. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Grace’s Ghosts was an excellent fast read. I sat down with this book and completely finished it within 1.5 hours. While this book is targeted towards young teenagers (middle school), as an adult, I loved this book too! Grace’s character building was excellent. You immediately feel connected to her and feel her emotions as they occur, as if they were your own. This story has many twists that leave you shocked until the very end. I would love to follow Grace on another adventure soon!

I really enjoyed reading Grace’s Ghosts by Stephenie Wilson Peterson. A young girl named Grace has a best friend Midnight, who happens to be a ghost. All of Grace’s friends are ghosts but she really doesn’t mind, anything is better than the kids at school. Grace finds out that her town, Tansy, is under a curse. If Grace figures out how to break the curse she could risk losing Midnight and all of her friends. I loved this book because I feel that it could speak to a lot of kids around Grace’s age. Many kids have a hard time fitting in and Grace shows how to embrace being different. All the characters were really likable, especially Grace, the story line was well developed, and as an adult I was kept interested throughout the whole story.

Grace’s Ghosts by Stephenie Wilson Peterson is a fast paced paranormal story for older kids about 10 – 12ish but having said that I enjoyed it. Stephenie has given us an original story where there are magic, ghosts, secrets and curses and a best friend who is a cat. It is fun, witty and spooky and thoroughly enjoyable, as we take a twisty journey along with Grace as she works with her ghostly cohorts to get to the root of the problem in town.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I read by Risa. I was hesitant because it’s listed as a children’s book but I enjoyed it. The mystery that surrounds it is interesting but remains a mystery until the end. It’s well-written and a very well-developed idea. Plenty of emotion with just as much realism. You’ll have to read to get to know Rocky and his story. But you’ll be as Enchanted as I was!!!

Swallowed by a Secret by Risa Nyman is her debut book and the story of a young boy who has lost his father but all may not be as it seems. The story is engaging and deals with sensitive issues which Risa has done well. This tale evoked emotions from laughter to tears as we struggle along the way and go on this adventure with Rocky and his friend as they look into the mystery of his father’s disappearance. Even though the story is aimed at a younger audience I still found myself invested in the outcome.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“One dead father. One lying mother”. Twelve year old Rocky overheard his Mum admit that the story she had told him of his fathers death was a lie. Rocky does not know how he can trust her following that revelation. Then soon after his fathers funeral a ‘For-Sale’ sign appears in front of their house, a house full of memories of his dad.  Having moved house and having to start at a new school, Rocky suddenly hears the voice of his father, who is insisting that he return to his old town for answers, but can you take advice from a dead person? Rocky then makes a new friend in Olive who offers to be Rocky’s assistant sleuth and help him discover the truth. Rocky and Olive then go on a journey of risks, eavesdropping and snooping all to discover the truth about his father and find out why his mother lied. This is a contemporary mystery with an interesting storyline and great characters in Rocky and Olive. Both of the main characters were likeable and relatable and I loved how their relationship developed throughout the book. It had me hooked from the start and I found it an emotional story, and one I felt fully immersed in whilst reading.

I have this really annoying habit of underestimating or even by passing books aimed toward a younger audience when in reality they have been some of the best books I’ve read. Swallowed by a Secret is certainly a 5 star book that falls into this category.
This book has everything, including the ability to make me cry, harder than I would like to admit. The characters, though young, (I mean the main character is thirteen) were really fantastic.
I struggle to find the words to describe this book, I want to say heavy, but that isn’t it. The author did a great job navigating through delicate subjects in a captivating, well written way. This was the first book read by this author and it will most certainly leave a lasting impression. Impressed is an understatement.

Swallowed by a Secret by Risa Nyman is my first read and I can honestly say it won’t be my last. This story is aimed for ages nine to thirteen but can be read by older kids and adults as well. What an emotional journey this story takes us on. I found myself unable to put it down once I started reading. Rocky is a twelve year who has lost his father and is now moving and switching schools. He overhears his mom telling the truth about what happened to his dad . Rocky and his friend Olive set out to find the secret. Find out what happens next in this must read .I can’t wait to read more.
