Hello and welcome to another fabulous Wednesday where I will be doing an e-book review. The book today is a middle grade novel called The Ghost in Me written by Shaunda Kennedy Wenger. The story follows Myri Monaco, a girl who is your average eight grader with a quite a fear of public speaking and she also happens to live with a ghost. This was a cute book. I quite enjoyed reading it. It started out like a regular old book about a regular old girl who liked this boy and she happened to live with a ghost and all was okay in the reading, but then I got to a point in the story and I just read it straight through cuz I had to see what happened. While reading it I went, “Oh! Oh!” a couple times.
The Ghost in Me is perfect for the range Shaunda has it marketed for: 10-14 and I’d even say young adult cuz I'm a full grown adult and enjoyed reading it. Cuz as an adult sometimes when you read a book that’s meant for the younger crowd you have to tell yourself this is a book meant for kids, but I didn’t have to tell myself that to get through any of the scenes in this book. The only thing I wasn’t really a fan of was the font the book was done in, but that’s just me being picky ol’ me. There was a time or two where I wanted to jab Myri and tell her to get over her stage fright, but I guess when you have a severe case of fear o’ public speaking you’re kinda like how she behaves. There was a point where I mighta dry hurled a bit, but I'm sure kids will love the scene. I'm going to try not to give anything away here, but there's this one part/thing that I really found funny involving a chair Myri's grandma bought an e-bay. He, he, good times. I also like how Myri has a distinct voice in her narration. The story was unique. I personally think it would make a good movie made for the Disney channel. Perhaps somebody should contact them.
This was a fun read, so I say go get yourself a copy.
