Twelve-year-old Alex may have lost his ability to play sports, but he gained the ability to see ghosts. Now he must figure out how to put an evil spirit to rest—or die trying.

Once an athlete and popular kid, Alex is in a terrible car accident that severely injures his hip and leaves him with a rare power: he can hear and see ghosts. All Alex wants is to be normal. But when a malevolent spirit begins haunting him, Alex must accept his unwanted psychic powers and work with his best friend, his paranormal investigator cousin, and two friendly spirits to solve the mystery of the bones in the wall and put the vicious ghost to rest. If he fails, he’ll lose his family and friends to a gruesome fate.

"An inventive, fast-paced tale brimming with chills, thrills, and heart. Perfect for fans of Lockwood & Co."
Henry H. Neff, author of The Tapestry series

It's been a busy week, so I almost completely forgot about reading Ghost Hunters: Bones in the Wall until yesterday. I spent the majority of my morning reading this book while sipping on a cup of coffee.

Like most books I've been reading lately, I didn't read the blurb. I only signed up to review the book based on its cover, which I thought the plot was going to be an adult horror story. However upon reading, I quickly learned this a middle school story. (FYI: I do like reading kids' books!)

Ghost Hunters centers around Alex, a twelve-year-old who gets a "sixth sense" after being in a horrible car accident. He now can see and communicate with the dead. With the help of his best friend, Jason, and his weird cousin, Hannah, Alex must solve a mystery and stop a vengeful ghost.

Overall, I enjoyed reading Ghost Hunters: Bones in the Wall. It's a fast-paced, well-written story with likable characters. The story has a nice Goosebumps vibe! Readers of all ages will have a blast reading it.
