Book Review: One for Sorrow: A Ghost Story

one for the sorrow.jpgToday’s recommended read is: One for Sorrow: A Ghost Story by Mary Downing Hahn.

When unlikeable Elsie dies in the influenza pandemic of 1918, she comes back to haunt Annie to make sure she’ll be Annie’s best–and only–friend soon.

For readers who enjoy horror, but prefer it to be creepy rather than gory Mary Downing Hahn is one of the go-to authors. This page-turning ghost story is for those who enjoy historical settings, and those who enjoy Hahn’s other books.

You can find One for the Sorrow: A Ghost Story in the Juvenile Fiction section at J HAHN.

Book Review: Thornhill

thornill.jpgToday I recommend: Thornhill by Pam Smy.

Parallel plot-lines set in different times, one told in text and one in art, inform each other as a young girl unravels the mystery of a ghost next door.

If you like to read horror stories, this one’s for you! Set in different time periods, two girls meet in an abandoned building. One girl’s story is told through diary entries and the other girl’s story through black and white drawings. This is a quick read with a message that will stay with you.

You can find this book in the Juvenile Fiction section at J SMY.
